Cerro Gordo is a fast XC semi-wide singletrack (2 to 3 feet wide). It's difficulty is mostly in the intermediate level and requires some good cardio. The trail is one-way, you start at its northern entrance. It's coastal environment so watch out for palm trees and coconuts!

The trail is well maintained and marked with arrows. It's surface is a semi-soft hard-pack, relatively free of obstacles and drains a lot so riding after a rainy day is possible. In terms of topography it consists of lots of shorts climbs and descents and you ride always in tree shadows.

Access Info

Just park in the parking area adjacent to the trail. You'll see the trail-head behind some benches.

      No importa el clima, esta ruta siempre se puede correr. Esta bastante limpia pero tiene secciones con mucha erosión en el terreno por lo que hay...

      Seco y nítido a par de días despierta de la tormenta.

      Dry, fast, and really enjoyable. Some sand accumulation on certain bends (the usual suspects), but nothing critical.
