Trail Overview

This trail section is mainly a compact dirt road, with some wide and narrow sections. You'll find some rolling hills, loose rocks, water crossing, and loose sand. There is a very small farmers' community called El Refugio, so expect some cows, horses, and goats crossing the road. Most of the year, you won't have any problem riding across this trail with a 4x4 or high-clearance vehicle. But during the rainy season, things can get very complicated, with lots of river roots going across the trail. You'll find some shallow water crossings, but very challenging hills, and muddy sections for experienced off-road drivers. You must use a 4x4 high-clearance vehicle. The mountain views are really beautiful.
