Panamericana Sur to The Pachacamac Exit. Pass the Pachacamac Ruins on the Right and Turn left at the Spanish and Inca Statues. Follow to downtown Pachacamac (Hardly) and then to the Hacienda on the top of the hill, can't miss it. Your best bet is to contact Pachacamac Aventuras - 0115119200306 - Their guides will show you the way for a meager fee.

Summary:
This is our saturday breakfast, a lot of fun and adrenaline, very cool and technical, breathless if you go fast.

Recommended Route:
From Lima by car 30 miles. Then from Pachacamac town 10 miles 1500 ft climbimg for a rush downhill. This is only 15 miles total.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
You can link to the lomas trail: a crazy rollercoaster. if you want more singletracks you can go to Cardal hills. But my favorite route is the Lucumo 30 miles with hard climbs, full technique and fast downhill 100 points!!!. If you come to Peru you can't miss these trails. Cusco is great but Lima is radical. Taste it!!!

Summary:
Fast, off camber ST that will leave you breathless. Scary but fun down hills. This 12 mile loop can be connected with Las Lomas for a longer heart pounding ride. Can get brutally hot in the summer. Bring food and water, LOTS! Very epic! Climbs get way steep. Heaven on dirt!

Recommended Route:
Go through center of town tothe trail head.

Need local MTBers to show you the way.

Summary:
this trail has many optional tracks. but mainly it s very very fast and fluid.has some very fast singletrack sections as well as some technical offcamber turns. the terrain is dry and hard ...and some parts are loose and rocky. controlling your braking is very important, and getting to know this trail by hard will help u go much faster.

Recommended Route:
there are many routes...it s better if u contact someone in lima.and u have to go before 6pm...the trail closes then because it is in the property of a mine.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
al trails in the prado area which is right next to el chirimoyo.

Summary:
"El chirimoyo" is a level 3 descent with a few steps in the middle. Very fast and technical. Sure you will enjoy it. Any doubts? Ask Hans Rey...he was there.

Recommended Route:
Be careful when going up to go around the pre-hispanic ruins.
