Start from El Jito tree heading east under the powerlines eventually heading north after crossing into the first development. Double track jeep road mostly until you meet the abrevadero watering hole. Then bit of sand riding in the arroyo and onto loosely marked singletrack with several arroyo crossings. Riding until you reach Rancho Nacapule (where more development is occuring for small ranchitos) head south thruough the ranch gate, passing Nacapule Canyon and continue until reaching the Baviso trail. Take a right on baviso trail and do nearly a complete loop in reverse.
Make your way from Laberinto to Dan's trail climb, suffer a bit on some steep hike-a-bike, then enjoy fun technical ride down through the canyon. complete the loop on dirt road back to El Jito.

Due to development we couldn’t find the trail, talked to someone on the trail that told us it’s still there but but not easily accessible

As of early 2021 this trail is in great shape and very easy to follow (despite the description here). Lots of carina and a clear path that’s been cut back of overgrowth. Outside a few slightly technical arroyo crossings this is a beginner trail but fun and very beautiful. Entrance is over the ramp just to the right of the big gate.

The description listed for this trail is spot-on! This is a nice, easy, flowy ride through the beautiful desert landscape with easy access from San Carlos. It's most fun done as described with the El Ocho route. We'll be riding this over and over while we're visiting this region.

Track on Trailforks doesn’t match actual trail on the ground. It was a bit hard to find the entrance from the north. Follow the dirt road until you see a trail spur. Easier with a bike computer or a handlebar mounted phone with the trails loaded. Canyon is a bit overgrown with weeds but still pasable.
