    I call this ST, rode down today on my 2013 WR250 Husky, GoatHead Entry Trail, because it has an entry point off another actual road that has a hill on it that I see goats on from time to time so I named this location GoatHill. Not too long a ride but has several different changes in the altitude & terrain along the way. It's sort of a top2bottom ride as it mostly runs straight over the peak of a spur that feeds off a much larger ridge line.

    The view below shows the lay of the land pretty much and riding on Cebu on the central part of the island where I reside. This ride, the blue line, went from rightToLeft, lower to higher elevation. Road access or not, people live all over those mountains and valleys.

    (Clueless on the green line google provided above)

    Here's a little different view of access to this entry point(green dot). You can see where in the lower right corner where I split off from the main road that I rejoin at the red-dot at the end of this ST. I'm just flanking it from higher ground really. The info in the upper right shows a wind speed of 22MPH.

    This ride happened as there was a super typhon, Bising, way off-shore + north of Cebu in the Pacific creating these higher-than-usual wind speeds. Knowing that Bising was N\NE of my present location and seeing that wind indicating-arrow pointing ~roughly in that direction, we must be getting some wrap-around wind effects from this storm.

    Here's a few elevation stats from a Garmin device I have for GPS tracking. About the only thing that makes sense, other than the distance, is the green bar that shows the elevation climbing steadily till a peak is reached and go downward to the main road crossing this area. With all the stopping and starting, pace/speed numbers are way-off.

    This shows the top of the spur, on the lower side, across where the route goes ... This is just after the start of the climb, a cool, steep, twisty, ~switch-back laden, section that leads into this cock-farm. Also has a very large brahma bull. A family also lives here, tending to this farm, and they were very friendly. Lacking AO tendencies, I'll seldom climb up from the bottom here. Just not gonna disturb his birds and other animals. What I might do is climb up to his home and roll back down so I do not disrupt his farm animals & birds. It is that cool a short technical climb.

    This is a view of the top side of his cocks and their huts just outside his fenced area ... Coming in from the top side, it is possible to kill the engine roll my Husky through his farm and onto the road below.

    The pic above gives a good view of the shape and size of the top line on this spur.

    The view past his farm yard and on towards the top... This would be a turn-around point if I came from the top side and did not want to roll through his farm with a dead-engine. The birds will probably be OK with a dead-engine roll through but not sure on that brahma ...

    Sunlight was really playing tricks with my cell-camera all along this ride.


    I should know all this landscape but not really sure what\where that large hill is out there. Anyway, this a view towards the N/NE from this lower-side location.

    Here's some green stuff along the way in a small section before heading into another small pasture.

    Two paths here; straight up that hill or follow that man-made path carved out of that hill to the right side..

    Here's a home out here ... Probably some older couple out here.

    Light was bad for my camera today .. This view is looking back to the east, maybe Guam or Hawaii is along this path if you travel far enough?

    Another small section here of small hard-wood trees... Cool but short, even by my standards ..

    Here's a saddle before reaching the high point approaching the opposite end of the trail.

    Three lines here leading out of this 2nd saddle.. The bottom one looks a little outdated; top one is gnarliest and pretty ~safe if you go off the low side with all that green-stuff to break your fall, probably even stopping your bike from even reaching that middle path.

    That is one monster of a charcoal-pit just under the kill-switch on my bars... Probably fueled from the hill clearing in the above pic.
