I think most of the people is familiar with this place, so you won't have problems getting there. But if not, you may just ride a cab and tell the driver to drop you at the Lourdes Grotto, or ride from the jeepney terminal at the market going to Dominican.
What's Interesting? A great test of leg and lung strength and endurance; Fresh air would fill your lungs as it explodes; You'll be reminded to communicate with the One up above.

How to get there: coming from Lourdes Grotto, the adjacent mountain is Quezon Hill. You can start your warm up from Dominican going up to Quezon Hill road 2, or ride from the jeepney terminal at the market going to Upper Quezon Hill.
What's Interesting? Un-polluted and less travelled route; Curious cows on the road-side; Stray peacocks and goats; road landslides; Joy run on the first half; test of will and gut on the second half.
