KL Area Trails
This off-road trail runs for 18 km or more and traverses the Ulu Gombak Reserve, from Kampung Kemensah in Ulu Klang to Kampung Sungai Pusu in Gombak. You can ride the trail from either direction, but it is more rideable if starting from Pusu. From Kemensah, though, there's a fast 4 km off-road downhill at the end.
Kampung Sungai Pusu provides access to the jungle trails in the Hulu Gombak Forest Reserve. The trails pass through lowland and hill forests. Some of the trails will take you into the Klang Gates water catchment area, and ultimately to the lake itself.
There are two areas that will be dealt with separately, the trails south-east of Kampung Sungai Pusu, and those heading north and north-east of the village. From Pusu, you can also traverse the Ulu Gombak forest reserve to Kampung Kemensah in Ulu Klang.
This trail starts at Kampung Kemensah, at the back of the National Zoo in Ulu Klang, and continues East across the range of hills that separates Ampang and Ulu Klang from Ulu Langat. It emerges at the Sungai Chongkak recreational area, about 1km North of Kampung Batu 18, on the Ulu Langat road. The trail is about 14 kilometres long, a substantial proportion of which is jungle singletrack.
Outside KL Trails
Kampung Sungai Dua is located in Pahang, near the town of Karak, slightly over an hour's drive out of KL. The Sungai Dua trail, located just past Kg Sungai Dua, is an arduous 40 kilometre out-and-back 4wd trail that goes deep into the Lentang forest reserve. The principal attraction of the trail is the impressive 100-foot Kerau waterfall located at its end.
Named after the American who single-handedly resurrected the Thai silk industry after World War II, Thompson came to the Cameron Highlands in 1967 for a holiday, went for a hike, and was never seen again. The ride is a 47 km loop through the Bertam Valley and Boh Tea Plantations of the Cameron Highlands, half on tarmac and half on rough doubletrack.
