Paria Branch Trace

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

The trail starts as paved road then deteriorates to single track that is often muddy, if not cleared recently it may be a bit overgrown in some sections but still ridable. It has many streams and creeks that cross it, which provide technical stuff for the very skilled but beginners should walk their bikes through them. Basically you ride from sea level to 600 feet, up and down a bit, then back to sea level. The last down hill is fast and fun. Once at the end you can go back the way you came or ride Paria Main Road back to Sans Souci.

Trail Directions
Drive along Toco Main Road up to Toco along the East Coast, then in Toco turn onto the Paria Main Road. Now you are heading west along the north Coast. Drive to Beach Break, which is the 2nd bay in Sans Souci. About 100 meters after you leave the beach there is a bridge on your right, this is the trailhead. On your bike ride across the bridge and up the hill taking the first right. Then follow this trail, the only other turn is about .5 mile after this where a road goes up hill to your left, do not go there, turn right.

This is a really fun trail that is not technically too dificult. It starts with a climb if you start from the Grande Riverre side, which I recommend, then goes up and (mostly down) to Sans Souci. In the wet season it can be very muddy (I once did it during a very heavy thunderstorm and we had to help each other cross the rivers, but still ots of fun). The rocks in the rivers are usually too slippery to ride, so check them first. Also orbweaving spides can spin webs across the trail, its amazing to observe them. If you are afraid of spiders do not go first.

Recommended Route:
From Grande Riverre to San Souci, then return via same route or along the main road, which is very scenic.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lanse Noir and Zagaya Trace.
