If your coming from san mateo you can take marikina all the way to ligaya. Then take marcos high way going to Robinson's east, turn left to cainta junction. Upon reaching the intersection/stop light turn left via ortigas extension ave. all the way ti tikling taytay, then turn right going to SM Taytay direction. After taytay Angono follows, there will be a Y-road after Meralco take the left road. Just follow the highway and when you reach Petron which is on the left side take the next road to it which is in front of Tumana Public School. That is the trail head at San Carlos Hills-Anthena-Petroglyphs.
After turning left at san carlos turn right at the first corner then left at the 2nd corner. you'll now face the steepest climb of the ride (till here is paved road). right turn at the end of the road to take you to the antenna at the top (gravel, loose rocks and asphalt chunks). the single tracks are after the antenna on the way to eastridge subd. the entry is by the big trees near aling wena's store. ask around and they should know where the bikers go.
once inside eastridge, left turn to another steep climb and you'll find dambuhalang bato. from there you can either go back to the antenna to go down to the main road or further inside the village is another exit albeit very steep paved descent.
good luck. don't forget to take pictures of yourselves while at dambuhalang bato.
wow. finally took interest in this inquiry. This is quite near my fathers place. Thank you for the info.
Is the antenna you are calling the one with the swimming pool on top of the hill? This is part of Binangonan already? If it is, i think it should serve as a landmark for the trail head for me too. I had been to that hilltop circa late 1960's, but on foot. This is very exciting. Now thats why lots of peeps here are raving about that place.
Very appropriate, for a Holy Week Journey. Could serve as my penance over my sins. But maybe i would push my bicycle on a bigger part of the journey. Thank you.

No swimming pool at the antena, brad. What you will find on top is a radio station antenna of 105.1 and I think it's a Meralco radio, also a sari-sari store of Rowena where lugaw is at its best! Near the area is where you enter a gap in the bushes that leads you to the single track going to East Ridge Village, that is where the swimming pool is... at the village club house.
I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14
coming from the antenna, you have to go to eastridge subd through the single track. when you arrive at the paved road just head east. it's a slight uphill then downhill and the entrance to the petroglyph is to your left after the entrance to the golf course. theres a small sign just before a motorpool.
when you schedule your ride, try looking at the eb thread, some bikers might be planning to go there.
stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.
Aug 10, 2019 22:17:32 GMT 8
anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

konablack: gamit ko two-piece raincoat, dehins lang sya ideal kung may backpack ka
Aug 13, 2019 7:39:14 GMT 8
oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....
Aug 13, 2019 11:27:45 GMT 8
anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.

anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.
Aug 24, 2019 4:32:23 GMT 8
lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.
Aug 24, 2019 8:56:30 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.

stealthwanderer: Hello! Meron bang pumapasok around Greenhills? If so, saan kayo nagpapark ng bike?
Aug 27, 2019 17:54:27 GMT 8

Aug 28, 2019 0:01:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: stealthwanderer, dati may parking ang bikes dun from firefly brigade, sa parking sa harap. pero ginawa na yata yun so dehins ko alam kung saan nalipat. try ko magtanong minsan kapag napasyal ako.
