BAGUIO: How to Find the Camp John Hay Eco Trail

Why See the Eco Trail

To experience nature the way "old" Baguio used to be. The pleasure for me is the trek, discovering the trail and being surrounded with large pine trees and the scent of pine cones.

HOW TO FIND THE ECO TRAIL

The entrance of the eco-trail is where the Paintball Republic is located. Paintball Republic is across Le Monet Hotel, along Ordonio Drive.

Follow this sign. Turn right.


This is what you see when you turn right.
Go to the path on the right side of the photo.

You go down these steps...

and more steps...

...then you reach this makeshift bridge.

Then you reach the most beautiful area of the eco trail,
where you will be surrounded by numerous large pine trees.

The sign indicates your arrival at the Eco Trail

YOU CAN CHOOSE TO TURN BACK AFTER ENJOYING THIS VIEW 



However, if you choose to continue the trail, the following photos will show you what to expect until you reach the end of the trail.






I came from down below.
Once you climb these steps, it will be hard to turn back and go down the steep steps. 


More paths to climb






Even if you see this sign, you can continue walking along the trail.

Then you start going down...




This is the end of the trail.
The paved road leads to the other entrance of Camp John Hay, near Panagbenga Park

This is the sign at the end of my trail

THE GRAY AREA SHOWN ON THE MAP BELOW IS THE PATH OF THE ECO TRAIL




TOTAL AMOUNT OF TIME SPENT WALKING THE TRAIL with photo stops: 1 hour (for the 1.2 km trail)

My Tip: Don't finish the trail if you don't have someone to pick you up. It's a long walk back to Ordonio Drive, where you entered the trail, about 1.5 km walk along Loakan Road until Le Monet Hotel.
