Don't be discouraged by the hike. If you are a skilled rider, you'll love the descent. If you are not... you may not..
This is a footpath that the locals use to get from their homes to El Valle. The climb is about 200 meters vertically and you must carry your bike, pushing it will not work.
When you descend, there are a couple forks in the trail, first you must take a right and then a left. After that, there are a couple minor trails to the sides, but if you stick to the main one you'll be fine. This trail takes you to the Cariguana access road.
