This trail goes from the Caseta de Vigilance of the National Park uphill to the UNAM Biological Station and then to the La Cañada paramo in the Malinche National Park. It is very hard uphill but the downhill is awesome. Make sure you ask permision to ride the trail with the park guards and if you do it in winter be careful that it can be extremely cold up there in La Cañada. Awesome fir forests and some rare Pseudo-tsuga trees.
