This habagat season is the perfect time to discover PLC’s hiking trails! For hiking choose from the Waterfalls or Miguelito Island trails. #plchabagat#plchiking
✅ Waterfalls Trail (beach-river-3 waterfalls-river-beach, 3.4 km, 2.5 hours) and Miguelito Island Trail (beach-coastline-island view top, 2.0 km, 2 hours)
✅ Expect the profile & strength of each waterfall to dramatically increase in strength this habagat season!
✅ With the rainy season, it is advisable to wear non-slip hiking sandals or rain boots, outdoor wear and insect repellant.
✅ You can inquire at the office for the PLC hiking program, register & pay the hiking fee, get a guide, and get oriented & listed under the scheduled hike for the day.
✅ Unless there is an experienced mountaineer in your group, the hiking guide will be required.
✅ To clarify, the entrance fee of PLC already includes access to Miguelito Island’s tidal pools, cliff jumping area and snorkeling areas at the bottom of Miguelito Island.
✅ In comparison, the hiking fee for the Miguelito Island trail mentioned above is a formal hiking route that starts at the beach, then up to the special access gate of the island that brings you to the viewpoint area on the top of the island (amazing experience) then back to the beach.
✅ For guests who will park their car at the PLC private parking lot on the highway: hiking down the very scenic parking road is a good way to reach PLC directly on the beach, and this is free, compared to the boat or 4x4 transfer.
✅ Happy hiking! Plan ahead and be safe!
