Kota Damansara Community Forest Trail Run

Trail running at Kota Damansara Community Forest (KDCF) on Sunday, 18 October ... Traversing Petaling Trail, Temuan Trail, Sahabat Trail and connect to Scouts' Trail, the group ran for 2 hours covering about 7km.

The last time I ran with trail runner friends at KDCF was in Jan 2012 – a lapse of 3.5 years. I could only remember faintly certain part of the trails. In order to complete the mission, I have with me Khoo Ban Yu who has just bought a new Garmin GPS handheld device, and Chong YF who could also remember vaguely the various trails. 

One of the reasons that we don't run here is due to the many stumps covered by leaves lining along the trail. One could easily kick the stumps, trip and fall. When the trails were first cleared, the small trees were cut down, leaving the bottom part of the trees protruding about few inches above the ground. 

This morning, I was surprised to see that the trails were well maintained, so the stumps on the ground are all visible for avoidance of being tripped.

The next time that we run here, we shall extend the distance by exploring Unity trail.

I managed to connect from KDCF to Taman Rimba Riang via Unity and Harmony trails. Do CLICK HERE to download the trail map drawn by yours truly (June 2016).
