San Mateo? Ah trapik dyan! - Trapik agad? Di ba pwedeng Mt. Biking Capital of the Philippines muna? :)
Welcome to Timberland Heights San Mateo! :) 
I was born in Marikina City, but I was raised in San Mateo, Rizal. I've been living here for almost 22 years now. BTW,  I am just 23 years old baka isipin nyo thunders na ko. Haha! Anyway, matagal na kami dito at isang kembot lang samin ang Timberland. Kaya perfect talaga sya para sakin. :)
Timberland Heights
This part of San Mateo offers scenic views of Metro Manila Skyline. The high altitude provides a continuous breeze that is as refreshing as the lush nature that surrounds the place.
Mountain bike enthusiasts
Only 15 minutes away from Quezon City, Timberland Heights offers Eco trails which had been popular to mountain bike enthusiasts. Runners also enjoy variety of terrain. The views alone can make it a spectacular run. 

Bawal ang hindi homeowners dito :(

Students of Manila Waldorf  School would usually go here for gardening
Aside from the great scenery, it is also nice to see and meet people who share the same passion. You'll see families spending time together, friends taking early morning jog, runners crossing dirt roads and bikers of all ages. On your way up, you will see bahay kubos for different Mt. Biking Association. 
my friend rona - hindi po kami turista taga San Mateo din kami haha

Timberland Heights is a Filinvest property but you don't really have to be a member for you to enjoy the place. You can run and bike around the area. You can go inside but you have to leave a valid ID to the security people. Sobrang strict sila sa loob. Yun din naman kasi ang isa sa binabayaran ng mga homeowners dun, SECURITY.

From Quezon Memorial Circle, go northeast via Commonwealth Avenue, past Ever Commonwealth Center. Turn right before Sandigan Bayan to Batasan Road then turn right again to Batasan-San Mateo Road. Cross the bridge over Marikina River, then turn left to Gen. Luna Avenue. After passing Tropical Hut and Mercury Drug (BRGY. AMPID), turn right to De Los Santos Street. When the road begins to slope, turn left to the highway going to Timberland Heights.
O ayan, San Mateo has sooo much to offer hindi lang trapik! :)
