Trail Overview

This route provides a unique and elevated perspective of the La Ventana and El Sargento areas, making it an excellent introduction to the region. The route consists entirely of dirt roads, most of which are one car wide, but some can accommodate two. The entry road provides a high vantage point above the towns, and the land traversed is really a grid of future developments known as Ejido land. Continuing straight at the first right turn will lead to a higher viewpoint and a closed gate so it would be an out-and-back to this road. Depending on the level of maintenance, some areas may have dense brush. If any of the roads are altered, a short detour using the map will easily get you back on track. The route culminates at a popular camping spot for Vans and Overlanders. Here, visitors can dig a hole near the ocean and enjoy the hot water emanating from the ground, providing a truly unique and memorable experience.
