"El Muerto" was once Ecuador's top trail, being extremely long and difficult to get down, it has now been cut in half with the PanAmerican highway going through it. Now, only the bottom part remains! It's a short but demanding trail!

Access Info

PanAmerican Highway, look for an opening in the barbed wire right before the school.
