PBA Gate to Junction 12 - Taman Rimba. From the main PBA Gate off of Jl. Sungai 1, this route takes you past the aqueduct system until reaching the Batu Feringgi Dam/Reservoir (trail can also be accessed from Chin Farm and is a shorter access point). At the Dam you can locate the trail entrance to Junction 13 and 12, you must cross over on the downstream side of the dam wall. On the western side of the stream you will see a sign posted on a tree which marks the jungle trail start. As you enter the jungle trail, take the first left at the junction which quickly turns into a steeply ascending hike towards Junction 13. From 13 the trail heads north along the ridge towards Junction 12. Once you reach Junction 12 you have the option of either returning to the start point or descend to the Forestry Park (Taman Rimba) at Teluk Bahang or continue on to Bukit Laksamana at 725m and then on towards Western Hill then Penang Hill. At Taman Rimba, there are buses which will return you to Georgetown.
