Libugon to Fonte Swim Hole
3 hours for 2 miles
We’ll visit the ruins of the historic site of the U.S. Navy radio station and “Operation Magic”, hidden in the thick jungle. Then we’ll hike to the 1910 brick dam, climb to the excellent lookout, and explore the valley downstream to cool off in the waterfalls and pools.

Moonie Stomp - Mt. Jumullong
3 hours for 2 miles
We hike up to the large crosses on top of the mountain next to Mt. Lamlam. Because it’s the day of the full moon, we will try to reach the top by sunset (maybe see a green flash). We’ll then be able to turn around and watch the full moon rise out of the Pacific Ocean. Two for one! We hope
