The trail is located in a protected private wildlife reserve named "O Parks, Wildlife, and Recreation." If driving/biking to park, a low-profile security post will check ID before granting access to the park. Small donation fee of $5 USD (~160 cordobas) for mountain bike trail access at the park pavilion and cafe. There are mountain bike rentals for $5/hour available scheduled in 2021. (delayed due to COVID-19 crisis).
Intermediate MTB trail blazed by a retired NYC firefighter (FDNY) with the local rural Nicaraguan farmers and forest steward. The setting is on a historic civil war battle hill region within a Pacific rural coastal community.
The singletrack has moderate skill switchbacks, mostly 10% grade inclines and descents. Few obstacles, several wood bridges, exposed roots. No gravel, sand, or woodchips are added to the trails. Some switchbacks are roped for additional safety.
Beginning views include panoramic view of the Pacific ocean. The trails weave through reforested area, mostly deciduous.
In the wet season, the tracks are a bit muddy, yet the forest is lush with flora and fauna. In the dry season, the terrain is dry, a bit windy, and branches and accumulated leaves are likely.
Most of the trail is mostly a gradual to moderate descent, with the last third of the trail being gradual to moderate ascent.
