“A very nice ride with everything, including a zip line!”— Jorge A Idarraga
During the zip line, riders can enjoy great views over the river and nearby waterfall. If you're not feeling up for this, it's possible to double back to the road and pick up this ride at the end of the El Guaico - Colmenas Road.
Otherwise, once on the other side, settle in for a dirt road pedal with an assortment of punchy climbs and descents surrounded by great views.
At the intersection with the paved road, head right and climb to the Forest Singletrack. This short trail travels through the trees, between fields and alongside a little river. You may encounters logs between various farm boundaries, but these are easy to scramble over.
Next, the Casa Grande to Don Quijote Road follows a steady climb to get out of the canyon. Eventually, this road will bring riders to the Don Quijote gas station on Route 56 (just west of a little town called La Union).
Head left on the paved road for several miles of descending and one moderate climb all the way back down to La Ceja where you started.
