We arrived at Adventure Park at around 9 am to do some Mtb and hiking. This place is known for its bike trails, of varying technical difficulty, from beginners to people who like to practice enduro. And for walking there are very cool trails through waterfalls, pastures and simply enchanting forests.
At the beginning we divided into two, Glori and I on a bike and Tavo with Tania on foot. The first stop was 500 m to walk up the river side to the waterfall. We walked a maximum of 20 minutes uphill along a path under the beautiful forest and when we arrived there was a platform to appreciate it in front of it.
Later we returned to take the bikes and we got divided again to go up to the highest part of the farm and there we ran into tavo and then went down to eat.
We went down a path called ¨the doll¨ I think, super well done with curves with slopes and parts well marked as “chicken line” for cowards who do not want to kill each other crashing.
Then we ran into the highest pasture to eat something at a table with a great view, we talked for a bit, rested and then we finished going down until we reached the parking lot.
To finish with cherry on top, we have lunch right here since on weekends they sell tortillas, ¨casados¨ and delicious breakfasts.
