“A gem of a trail at the south end of the trail network.”
— Phil Lucero
All of La Tierra is good for families!
When the trails were redesigned in 2008, they must have had their best trail builders working on this section. It's a fun alternate route to going east to get back to the La Cuchara parking lot. Going west on this section couldn't be nearly as fun.
It starts at marker 19 heading south downhill. A dogleg turn to the left brings you back uphill. You'll climb for a bit before getting to the best part of the trail. This part can also be accessed via marker 21.
The next 1/2 mile somewhat resembles the Hustle & Flow
as it has features of a flow trail like dips, tight turns, and berms all along the way. It's a great way to finish a La Tierra ride if you parked at La Cuchara.
