Batulao Artscapes is located south of Metro Manila in Barangay Kaylaway, Nasugbu Batangas, along the Tagaytay-Nasugbu major highway.
What makes the riding experience unique in Batulao? Two words: the trails and the weather. Batulao weather is something new for the mountain bikers. As you get off your car to gear up, the cool breeze will immediately hit you, to tell that you are in a cooler place.
There are three different sections in Batulao that you can explore and enjoy.
"Ilat" means a small stream or river. This is the area where the mound and mango trees are. This section is both a trail section and a skill park. Expect to traverse through various berms, drop offs, rollers, table tops, log stairs, and a wooden bridge. This is an INTERMEDIATE trail with some EXPERT technical features provided.
"Tigkal" means solid lump of earth, as in “tigkal na lupa”. Tigkal trail allows one to navigate a portion of Batulao Artscapes’ perimeter, which results to a scenic, nature-infused ride highlighting the expansive land’s natural topography.
From the word "masukal", as in “masukal na gubat”. This trail is unique to Batulao Artscapes as it celebrates the lushness of its natural forest. Practice your biking skills with Sukal trail’s wooden bridge and a unique obstacle that requires one to duck under an existing fallen tree. This is an EASY trail with some INTERMEDIATE & EXPERT technical features provided.

Century Properties to Hold First Ever Batulao Bike Trail Event
Promoting an active and outdoor lifestyle, Century Properties Group (CPG) is holding the first-ever “ArtVenture: Bike Trails at Batulao Artscapes” Bike Trail event on March May 5 and 12, 2018 at the 7-kilometer bike challenge circuit located at the Batulao Artscapes Complex in Nasugbu, Batangas. The maiden Batulao biking event is the ultimate test of agility, concentration, endurance and athleticism that will challenge beginner, intermediate and professional bikers alike, thanks to its topography, composed of rolling terrain, hills, and natural forest.
“We envisioned this event to be a worthwhile adventure for all mountain biking enthusiasts. We want to elevate the awareness and support for the sport in the Philippines by providing a venue here in Batulao Artscapes, which truly espouses artventure, or an art cum adventure lifestyle. The site’s natural landscape indeed serves as an ideal destination for adrenaline-pumping biking action,” says Century Limitless Corporation (CLC) President and COO Tim Hallett, President of Century Properties’ leisure, tourism and hospitality unit that developed Batulao Artscapes.
Dubbed “the world’s first livable art park”, Batulao Artscapes is a 142-hectare residential tourism development situated in the heart of Batangas. The project is developed by Century Properties is dubbed as “the world’s first livable art park” because of its and features limited edition, branded designer prefabricated homes and museums, designed by some of the world’s preeminent architects, designers and artists. The development is a partnership between CLC, a subsidiary of CPG, and from Revolution Precrafted, a global manufacturer and supplier of prebuilt homes and structures. Its world-class vacation amenities include a man-made beach with clubhouse and a lake with a charming wedding chapel. ‘Artventure’ facilities include a sports park, flavor park, and art park with museums designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects.
CLC Century then partnered with Trails Solutions Inc., a company dedicated to building world-class mountain bike parks and pump tracks around the country, to make the trail more conducive to semi-professional mountain biking and a permanent fixture in the development masterplan. Trails Solutions Inc. is the brainchild of sports enthusiast Toby Claudio with fellow mountain biking aficionados Edmund Mangaser, Vic Paterno and Agu Paiso.
“We built a trail network that showcases the natural beauty of the rolling terrain. It starts out with a relaxed section thru through a grove of mango trees and winds its way up to a hill where we built a lot of unique features that challenge riders and that they can use to practice their riding skills,” says Claudio. Claudio believes that the Batulao bike trail would be quite an experience not only for avid bikers, but for people who appreciate nature. “The best part is the section that passes through the forest where we made it a point to show off the majestic giant trees and even a portion where you pass under the trunk of a fallen tree. We also built some wooden obstacles such as bridges and berms that help riders traverse the lush terrain of the forest. There’s something for all types of riders and skill level,” Claudio added.
