Rating of this hike is (6) challenging

The official hike starts by Cecil's residence where we walk all along great dirt terrain all the way northwards through the pines until the wide dirt road gradually narrows once again along great and clear trail all the way until we eventually come to the Matura River. We continue our trek along another trail that is no known whatsoever that will ultimately lead us to the well-known Manulot point where we stop and take a well deserved break before starting our second leg of our trek.

We are now on the opposite side of the mountain where once again we trek along a narrow but a well defined trail all the way to the pines, where like the start of the hike, the trail broadens and great walking all the way back to the Toco Main Road where it is road walking all the way back to Thomas Trace back to our parked vehicles.

In all, we are looking at a great 10.5 miles of forest trekking.
