This is the trail used for the PEru mega avalanche race. The race starts across the pass on the high open slope and then funnels onto this trail. It goes by old ruins. has awesome single track, a couple jumps. Great trail.

      Mind blowing views and so much fun. Holy moly. Very dangerous if there’s any traffic on the road.
