Both roads encompassed a zigzag route with a wonderful scenic environment that you can see as you pass through. Kennon Road is the shortest route but a little dangerous due to incidental falling rocks and thick fog which is why Aspiras-Palispis Highway (also known as Agoo-Baguio Road and formerly known as Marcos Highway) is much safer to pass through. Also, there are some portions of the highway particularly along Barangay Camp 3 in Tuba that are prone to land-sinking,

Kennon Road has a total accumulated distance of 41.2 kilometers  or 25.6 miles starting at its North end which is at the Aspiras–Palispis Highway and Governor Pack Road in Baguio and ending at its South end which is at the MacArthur Highway in Rosario, depending on where you are coming from.

Kennon Road which is also known as the Rosario-Baguio Road is formerly the Benguet Road. The following are the Baguio junction points that you will pass through along Kennon Road:

  • Governor Pack Road
