Overview

Head north on this ride from Sayulita to San Pancho with a serious climb in the middle to add some challenge and exercise.

Need to Know

There will be a couple of fences on the trail. In Mexico, it is ok to go on private land as long as you don't break or steal anything, and close the gate after you go by.

Description

Start from downtown Sayulita, head north on Avenida del Palmar, which eventually turns into cobblestone and then into dirt. It narrows down as an ORV Trail known as the Malpaso Path as it winds through the jungle taking you all the way to Malpaso Beach.

From there, the trail goes up a small mountain range and the riding becomes a steep but doable, shaded singletrack. This trail is known as the San Pancho Trail. After your climb, you then head downhill towards San Pancho, where you'll hit a cobblestone road. Follow the cobblestones to your right towards a paved road. Ask the guards at the gate to let you by since you are going to San Pancho (they should be fine with it).

San Pancho is a great town for meals and drinks. There can be a couple of fences along the way, but it's easy to go around them. In Mexico, it is ok to access private property, as long as you don't destroy or steal anything. This ride can be done in both directions.
