Near Bogor, the 30km Generals House Trail is a challenging route. Begins with a two mile technical jeep road climb. Once you get to the top of the mountain (above the Generals house) you will find one of the sweetest singletrack downhills ever seen. Be careful! sometime there are stairs cut into the hillside where it gets steep. There is also one section with some pretty scary exposure. This opens up onto a fast jeep road descent. When you hit the road again stop at the nearest toko (small store) and talk to the Stress girls. From there you take the road down to the golf course maintenance entrance.
climb to the parking lot and keep climbing until you get to the unfinished hotel. Take the ultrafast road down to the ojek stand turn right and mountain bike ride appro. 1.5 miles. Ask where the jembatan bamboo is and someone will tell you how to gwt to the bamboo bridge over the river. Follow the trail back to the car.
To reach the trailhead, take the toll from Jakarta towards Bogor. Take the Bukit Sentul exit and turn left. Park at Taman Budhaya. Head down hill on the road and turn right at the first dirt road which leads into the mountains.
Overall, Generals House Trail is the 3rd most popular mountain bike trail of all 4 mountain biking rides in Indonesia.
