The Marikina–Infanta Highway, also known as the Marcos Highway or MARILAQUE Highway (MARILAQUE stands for Manila-Rizal-Laguna-Quezon), is a scenic mountain 110-kilometer highway that connects Metro Manila with Infanta, Quezon in the Philippines.

The highway starts in Marikina near Katipunan Avenue, the Loyola Heights segment of Circumferential Road 5, in Quezon City. It traverses the Marikina Valley and passes through Antipolo, where it intersects the Sumulong Highway (at Masinag). After Masinag the road starts its ascent towards the Sierra Madre passing through Tanay, Rizal, Santa Maria, Laguna, finally to Infanta, Quezon.
