Overview

This is a fun ride in the city with some great singletrack descents and decently hard climbs.

Description

This is a great local ride, and most visitors will enjoy it! Parking is complicated as we usually park in club San Isidro, which is a private golf club close to the start of the trail. From there, you head to Santa Rosalia which is privately owned land that welcomes bikers. The loop inside Santa Rosalia is beautiful, with a lot of trees, some hard climbs, and great descents.

From there, you head to Carretera a El Salvador through the Santa Rosalia house complex. This is a little portion of road riding before you reach trail again.

Go down the highway for a couple of kilometers and the portal descent will be on your right-hand side. There are some small houses and, right after passing a bridge, the entrance to the singletrack will be on your right. You may need to carry the bike for about 100 meters, and then prepare yourself for a fun descent!

At the end, make a right and head back to the club.
