Beatufil pines a lot of fire roads in one direction and a Very old train track (no track on the ground but there are 5 tunnels) the track was actually never installed but Miles of the way was prepared it gets pretty technical where some of the track has become a stream bed (if you go in the other direction it is all fire road) but if you cross the bridge near the waterfall you will have some incredible views some easy riding as well as some wet technical stuff that might be considered hike-abike unless you are good *Bring a head light one of the tunels is over a 1/4 mile long

Summary:
you start at the waterfall of mexiquillo going west or to the right, it is really very easy to follow, just stay on the railroad track bed, there are several tunnels in which you will need a flashlight, one of them is 800 meters long and takes you about 30 min to cross and it gets pretty dark inside warning there could be rattlesnakes inside so watch where you step. once you get through all the tunnels one of which you have to go around and the trail gets very narrow you get to what seems the end of the road and you have to began a climb by the side of a dry creek bed to your right it is about a 45 min climb some of which you have to walk, once you get to the top you have two choices: one is the follow all the roads to your left so that you can get to the Highway and make a right on the pavement and return to Mexiquillo watch the traffic, or: once you get to the top you follow the roads to your right and you can ride a dirt road that goes along the mesa all the way to mexiquillo, you really can not get lost, on the south side you have the cliffs and on the north side you have the highway.

Recommended Route:
this is a great trail to ride but there are a few trickey places where one could get lost.
it takes about 4 or 5 hours to ride this trail some of it you have to walk. you should know some navigation in the mountains. the trail is not marked although is pretty clear where it goes.
