Estero del Soldado Details
Trail is ridden in a clockwise direction, start by heading up the slight hill on double track, with a short section of single track before passing through an area in development and up a wooden ramp to really start this ride. Trail is 11.4km of mostly fast flowing singletrack with short punchy climbs and rocky downhills. At about KM 3.5 veer to the left, cross the road to the 'La Pila' loop that will end with a short climb up this same road, at the top take the singletrack to the right. At KM 5.5 you will want to take the left up a series of switchbacks to begin the most technical section 'Cactus Muertos'. Other sections as you progress 'Las Cañadas', 'Kamikazee' -a loose downhill with fast super fun flow after it, 'Monument Valley' and 'Montaña Rusa' -the money shot view of the estuary and Tetakawi the iconic mountain of San Carlos. Take a left to finish the trail with another KM of fun before returning to the parking lot. Definitely arrive early during summer months to avoid the heat and bring plenty of water, if not, there are several options to shorten the ride if you need to due the Sonoran heat and humidity. Nos vemos en la pista!
Parking area is located at KM 3 of the Delfinario road between San Carlos and Guaymas. Located on on a small hill on the left side of the road just after passing the Estero del Soldado Estuary visitor center. Trail map and trash can located at parking area. Start this loop trail by heading up the slight hill on double track.
