Mueco de Navarro

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

The trail is one of the most scenic ones in the country and starts with an incredible downhill about 4 miles to the bottom of the valley (Orosi), then one must follow the river side called mueco de navarro for a slow climb through different roads until the top of the mountain (1000 mts) and then a single track threw coffee plantations and pine farms which is downhill with great slides.

Reviewed by: Marcel Donoso , from San Jose, Costa Rica

Summary:
The downhill is very exciting but must be very carefull for the road is not marked and if a wrong turn is taken one might end in a quarry. The highlight of the route is the single track through a pine forrest which includes roots, 90 degree falls and more.

Recommended Route:
I strongly recommend this route for all beginners and middle tier MTB riders. Specillay for those of you that are visiting Costa Rica and want to combine sightseeing with MTB.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Costa Rica is a natural country for MTB. I strongly recommend the toughest MTB race in the world. Only for Ironmen... It's called "La ruta de los conquistadores" For more information go to their web page at www.adventurerace.com .
