The cleanest and best maintained paths in Las Terrazas with fun terrain for intermediate riders. It keeps you close to the Las Terrazas community and stays close to the lake if you need to take a swim to cool down in between.
Need to Know
The trails are shared with hikers and bird watchers so be careful and respectful.
Take the narrow, but clean trail up towards the Serafina viewpoint. From there, head a bit farther uphill before descending in a single trail with some rocks and roots to the ruins of the Serafina coffee plantation. From here, it is a rolling trail through the forest which gradually turns into a dirt road and leads you back to the main street along the lake. Short, but nice and easy.
Once back on the main road, take a left and follow the road all the way to the entrance gate of the park. Here, take a left and follow the steep road up to the cafe Buenavista. Keep on going and the road turns into a single trail. Head up the steep, somewhat rooty and rocky trail and where it splits, and make sure to take a left. Here, it pretty much flattens out before turning into a nice and flowy descent that will bring you back to the main road. From here, take a right and head back to the Palmar Lake.
