Trail goes around the airport perimeter. The north to south version ( follow the red and white signs of the GR01SMA walking trail) has a bit more climbing to it but gravity works with you in some of the technical sections, the other way around there are some sections that may require you to walk or carry your bike, depending on your trials riding skills. You will have have a creek to cross, and 3 gates. With the exception of one gate which requires you to pass the bike over it first, all the others are easy to go around and have a pedestrian access next to them. As for the terrain, it`s very dry in the summer months, but with constant rain, it can become very difficult to ride, swamp like at times.

Access Info

You can start the ride at sports center parking lot, the trail works in both directions.
