Today's Trail : Taman Cabaran (Putrajaya Challenge Park)

We had to ditch our plan to hike up Gunung Nuang today with friends and instead, decided to head somewhere much nearer to our home.

This time, we took Son along to Taman Cabaran or Putrajaya Challenge Park (PCP) and hit the mountain bike trail there.

No mountain bikes for us though, just our legs and no wheels. ^^
Can also wall climb or skate here in Taman Cabaran. Free entrance to skate or use the thrill park facilities or use the mountain bike trail but there are fees for the wall climbing.
Plenty of trail to chose and all are marked clearly so we just had to follow the markings accordingly. 

Anyways, we just meander from route to route, trying to get as much mileage as we can while doing one complete loop. Overall distance for the mountain bike trail is approximately 9K if I'm not mistaken.

We bumped into a number of mountain bikers and one thing to note for hikers/joggers/runners - do give way to the bikers. It's easier for us to move aside than for them to brake, you know. 
Our loop for today. 
Always nice to do stuff together with the family.

And so far, apart from our training; we do keep aside a day to spend outdoors with Son. (Trips to mall don't count, ok? For us lah)

  2. Challenge Park? This one seems interesting. It's a shame that every time I go to Putrajaya, I only ever hang out along that main road.

  4. I like your advice to hiker/joggers/runners as I agree that it is easier for them to move than for the bikers to brake. Let's be considerate!

    1. It's just basic trail/hiking manners.

      Observing it will ensure both side's safety. Don't you think so? :)

  8. I also prefer legs and no wheels as I could slow down & stop anytime. With the bikes macam sikit ganggu.
    Thank you for sharing this trails. I am surprised there is a watch out tower.

      Each to their own, right? :)

    1. I think most parks in Putrajaya close at 7pm.

      But I'm not too sure abt PCP.

      Perhaps you can go, unless the guards chase you out. ;)
