Update

A great all mountain, enduro ride at the San Sebastian trail network.

Javier Chavez

Overview

Year-round riding!
Probably the best way to link most of the trails in this area. Lots of technical and fast downhill, some pedaling, and lots of cool towns to stop at.
Dogs: Off-leash

Need to Know

Shuttle, unless you are using EPO.

Description

Wow, so much to say.

Shuttle from La Estancia to La Bufa, hike over to La Bufa for a great view of the mountain range and the ocean. Then ride on Mexican Elves Trail, hero dirt, through pine forest until you get to the forgotten town of Real Alto.

From Real Alto, get ready for some tight switchbacks on the Mexican Champions trail.

Once done with Mexican Champions, there is mix of cobblestone, singletrack and out-of-bounds riding, until you get to the detour towards Las Minas Trail.

Climb for 5-10 minutes until you get to the beginning of Las Minas Trail; nice red soil, with pine needles but be careful as it gets slippery. This is a long downhill and the terrain changes as you go. Finish at a beautiful stream next to a dirt road that takes you to San Sebastián.

Have a beer at San Sebas and climb for 15 minutes until you reach the newly developed, Bunny Hops. You'll know why it is called that pretty soon. This trail tends to go downhill, but has some pedaling sections.

Once done with Bunny Hops, get on a mixed dirt/paved road until you hit the main road connecting La Estancia and San Sebastian. If you are done, just take a right and enjoy a smooth, paved road downhill to La Estancia, for a great lunch with Don Coco.

If you are up for some more, take a left, and climb for 2 km and do La Virgencita Descent; challenging singletrack with loose rocks.

Finally, ride the pavement for 1.5 km until you get to Don Cocos restaurant for great crawfish and wild boar stew.
