Mt. Mirador / Mt. Pinagbanderahan: Quezon National Forest Park

August 30, 2015

Situated right in the middle of Quezon National Forest Park is Mt. Mirador or Mt. Pinagbanderahan, whose peak is 1200 ft. above sea level. The cemented 2-km. trail is manageable, scenic and alluring to newbies in hiking. It was very important during World War II, as it was where the Philippine flag was hoisted; hence, its name.

Some Notes and Tips

  • Wear fingerless gloves as the trail to the summit requires climbing rocks.
  • There are sari-sari stores at the jump-off point.
  • Come early as you might want to check other places of interest in the area: Wawa Dam, Pamitinan Cave, and Mt. Binakayan.
    • We got there at around 2pm and got back to the jump-off point at around 6pm, leaving us no time to explore other parts of the area.
