Loving Caylabne

 

The views near the gate of Caylabne.

Parked at NAIC municipal Hall. The total route is about 30 kilometers one way so 60 kilometers total back and forth. This is one of the best biking destination- manageable climb (like Bugarin), awesome view, ample foliage for shade against the sun, great asphalt condition- like the oval track tartan (as of writing) and secure (passing by the Marines Naval camp). To get access inside Caylabne Resort, you can ask the guard for pass; in our case we had our lunch in their restaurant but not sure if they will give you pass if you will not eat at their restaurant. There is an almost complete (few sections still being constructed) route going to Nasugbu (with tunnel cutting the mountains) so in the future, a Tagaytay-Alfonso-Naic-Ternate-Nasugbu-Tagaytay loop is possible. The route passes by Mt. Palay-

Waiting for hand-outs. Monkeys are one of the common wildlife encounter near the Caylabne area.

palay with a popular hiking destination- Pico de Loro (Parrot’s Beak). In fact you can bike-hike the route as there is access to Nasugbu from the base of the mountain. We originally planned to take a short hike to Pico but we found we had little time to add that to our itinerary. Another option is to just ride to a small waterfalls near the trail head of Pico. Pico de Loro is site to a new resort type residential development by SM Properties. The only concern doing this route is the bad traffic in Cavite. CaviTex is a big help but there are still a lot of choke points. So in the future, when the Nasugbu-Ternate link is built, we think its better to go to Nasugbu and bike to Caylabne- better yet, do the proposed loop as mentioned.
