Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail

Mountains and Trails Trek Distances

My friend Bambi Guevarra who has a long mileage of treks, shared to me his record of the mountains/trails he had done. Reading the record, it amazing to see how much distance you'll have to trek to cover a mountain/trail route. Like in Sicapoo where the ascent and descent was huge, we walk a total of 26KM ( possibly +40%). Below is the recording he sent me. 





Notes on distances, altitude ascents and descents of PH Mountain trails 
    by Victor Guevara Jr.

The distances are based on waypoint to waypoint distances from my gps readings. The actual distance will be longer by 20% to 50%, depending on contour of trail.  For example, the distance of the Bokod trek is 17.6, while the distance published by Bokod is 26km, or 48% more. My actual reading of the trail to pico de loro is 5.6km while the waypoint distance is 4.2 or 33% more.  I also have actual reading of half of the bokod trail and the actual is 35% more than the waypoint distance.
On altitude gains and losses, most are based on the readings I got from my casio watch. Some were taken from my notes on altitude recorded every 15 min by my casio watch. The numbers are in meters
These notes will give the reader a good idea on the level of difficulty of the treks recorded. You will be able to choose what trek is appropriate for your fitness level.

These numbers are best estimates. Please notify me if you discover some big disparity.
