Description

Start climbing a pavement road to warm up your legs. Once you've left the pavement, jump a gateway to the Forest and begin the 8 km climb on a wide trail. You'll know when you've come to the top when you come to the Watchtower Number 1. This is a great place to take a picture and enjoy your surroundings.

Continue on the same path downhill and look for an entrance on your left. This is the start of your singletrack descent on the trail we call "Espinazo." The trail is full of curves, switchbacks and some jumping sections.

Eventually, this trail connects with another called "River Flow," which isn't very steep but is very fast. This trail is where several local riders have a friendly competition for KOMs. At the end of this path, head back to where you started on "La Cebada" sidewalk that has a mix of wide road with some sections of singletrack.
