When mountain bikes first began to become popular is quite common to hear both non-cyclists and people who had been riding road bikes for years asking why. We had to stop several times on the hike up to catch our breath (the mountain is 1,686′ above sea level). This ride will save you a lot of trekking energy as you wont need to trek through the rainforest to get to the mountain proper however if you happen to get car sick then it doesn’t help your cause.
The Mountain Institute sends out occasional e-updates on our work in the Himalayas, Andes and Appalachian mountains plus news about our Global Initiatives and work in the Western USA. Hughes says that this mountain cannot be overcome unless the blacks are proud of who they are, and are not afraid to express their culture.
A mere two-thirds mile into the hike, the trail passed over the fairly flat summit of Dobie Mountain. I think the mountain is something that blocked the black people from seeing the beauty and value of their race because all they could see was what was above them.
The trail immediately plunges into the forest, passing a fire foot trail and maintaining a fairly flat section before beginning a fairly steady climb up the north slope of Pass Mountain. He doesn’t say tell me about the mountain; after all he knows our needs long before we bring them in prayer.
To get to the trailhead of this mountain one would need to ride in a 4WD vehicle from the starting point in Kampung Lasah orang asli village (takes 2 hours) or from Pos Brooke (takes 40 minutes). Remember than anyone who sees the view from atop a mountain has earned that view, and nature has paid them in full for that work.
