32km route starting in Sinoquipe and finishing in Banamichi, Sonora. Starting from Sinoquipe with 1.5km of pavement before heading offroad. Starting on dirt/gravel doubletrack you soon cross the Rio Sonora (Sonora River) at approx km 3 and continue through sandy arroyo terrain for 5km more. Soon you find yourself climbing and descending on sometimes rough and rocky jeep and ranch roads for approx 15km. The route continues with 10km of well traveled dirt roads and ending with 1.2km of pavement to finish in Banamichi.

Great route to measure your level of fitness level each March with the event 'Ruta Rio Sonora' hosted by Coyotes club of Hermosillo.
