This trail will test your ability to climb, descend and balance your bike. Very demanding trail with a few hike-a-bike sections depending your level of skill. Bring your helmet, gloves and knee and elbow protection if you have it.
It is marked only by rock cairns and sometimes difficult to follow and because of it's very technical nature it is not ridden very often. First stop is an slight out and back section to viewpoint overlooking the Bahia San Carlos. Then loop around an additional 4km of rocky, off-camber, drops, climbs, finishing with a path on 'slickrock' through and next to an arroyo.
Some of the most amazing views in San Carlos.

Access Info

Closest parking is located next to the marina seca. Cross the arroyo to begin the climbing the trail.

 After several tries, was impossible to get into start point. Access very hard to find on actual conditions.
