For years, the hills in Bagocboc, Opol has been a favorite scenery among mountain bikers taking the Bagocboc-San Simon route.

But soon, this natural panoramic view will be available not just for bikers, nature trekkers and locals in the area but to all motorists and commuters as the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) will be constructing a major diversion road that would link Barangay Bagocboc and Barangay San Simon in Cagayan de Oro City making it more accessible to the general public. This was disclosed by Misamis Oriental Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano. Gov. Emano said this was revealed to him by DPWH Secretary Mark Villar during his recent visit to the city and that the road project will eventually connect to Iligan City.

Bagocboc hosts a couple of interesting sites: (1) Mindanao Enduro Park – a motocross site, and (2) Rupert’s Project – a private nature resort and pool available for booking.
