Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

The trail has some moderate to steep climb in singletrack and fireroad, a beautiful singletrack downhill with a lot of switch back turns(very technical and fast). Also has long fire road downhills and to finish it all, a fireroad in a plane, to use the big ring. The climate is quite hot, in the 90C. There are shower and other facility in the albergue(parking,drugstore,restaurant,etc.)

Summary:
Salinas is a great trail with with some fast sections and tight singletrack. Best to ride early mornning or late afternoon due to the heat its like a desert. The trail is loose and fast lots of loose rocks and dirt. There is even a new downhill course fro downhillers which was fast not to rad though.

Recommended Route:
Highway 52 to ponce

Summary:
the trail could be ride by any skill level, but will be better engoyed by moderated skill riders, because the singletrack downhill is really tricky in the turn, because of the speed and the terrain. The other downhill are fast but in fireroad.

Recommended Route:
I recomend the first part of the trail that past trough the water tank.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Other trail good in P.R. is in Cambalache forest.
