This trail begins with spectacular views of Mt. Ausangate to the south and then rips down along a narrow singletrack towards the Vilcanota River. There are some epic rock features and drifty switchbacks for those riders who like to get loose. The entirety of the ride takes you through fields of potatoes, quinoa, and wheat. Remember to yield to the local farmers and herders, who are the Cusco area's true trail builders! You'll eventually emerge near the town of Andahuaylillas by following a water canal along the Vilcanota River.
