When i don't go trekking or climbing any mountains, i will spend my weekends (morning) power-walking thru' this 'cross-country' trail just 10 minutes away from my home in Sect 3 BBB. The trail is parallel to the river starting from the UKM bridge towards Jalan Reko.
Based on my average standard walking speed of 5km/hr, I would say that the overall trail (to and fro from the starting pt) is about 5-6km, and can be completed within 1 hr to 1hr 30 minutes, pending on your speed n fitness level.
Normally after doing some simple stretching n warm ups routine, i will start walking up this steps towards the Petronas Station @ Sect 3 ..
Upon descent at this pt, kalau nak lebih 'challenging' u can climb up this small hill (on the right) ..
or else teruskan jer walking on the tar road .. ;)
... n you'll see this small but beautiful lake.
Proceed .. on the left of this trail u can see 'rumah kongsi' / temporary wooden houses for construction workers .. ;)
Sometimes (esp after heavy shower the night before), u can see rubbishes stuck to the scrubs / small plants by the river side .. a proof that the river water has swell up even to that level !
As u walk further up, u will reach this big crevasse. The ground is mostly made of soft sand n mud .. be extra careful, esp if the soil is wet. U might get your shoes stuck in there !
To me, i consider the overall trail here is quite 'simple' n mostly flat land .. but there's also several 'cracks' or crevasse due to erosion like this one here that u hv to negotiate ..
Continue power-walking .. If you are lucky, you'll get to see abt 3-4 'ayam hutan' hanging around this spot .. but they r really wild. The moment they see us or hear people coming, they will immediately fly away .. that's the reason why until today i couldn't get to snap any photos of them (as proof) .. but they r very colorful .. ;)
Lokasi ni mmg dekat sangat dengan perumahan Sect 3 Tambahan .. But i guess not many people knows abt it .. ;) Lokasi ni sesuai kalau nak buat weekend outdoor breakfast with your family .. suasana tenang di tepi sungai .. ;)
... n this one too .. ;)
Some part of the river side is heavily eroded. I hope the local authorities will do something abt this immediately, or else .. ;)
Cucumber anyone ? .. peninggalan pekerja2 Indon yang tinggal di 'rumah kongsi' yg buat construction projek perumahan di kawasan tu .. ;)
There's even a spot where someone just decided to build a mini farm for his ducks n even swans .. very kampung-like !
Teruskan perjalanan .. ;)
If u go thru this trail very early morning like 0700hrs, you'll come across herds of cows n sometime buffaloes 'migrating' from one place to another looking for 'greener pasture' .. huhu ;)
Actually the trail is simple as u just need to just follow the river .. won't get lost one ! .. But be extra careful here becoz some parts of the trail is very close to the edge of the river .. huhu ;)
This marks the end of the trail .. Nun jauh kat belakang sana (across the river) is the Hentian Kajang at Jalan Reko. Actually if u proceed on this trail, u'll see a bridge that allows u to cross over to the other side .. taking u to Section 5 BBB n Hentian Kajang !
From this point i usually turn back 180 degrees and walk back to the starting point thru the same trail. Biasanya can complete the whole cycle in 1 hr or so .. sempat lagi utk gardening sikit2 kat rumah spt pruning the dead branches n leaves .. I consider this as a healthy weekend activity .. Tq Allah !
