Trail PD

Trail PD (Pendiente Dorada (Golden Slope)) is a doubletrack and dirt road trail that runs approximately North/South on a hill of agricultural fields north and east of Huayapam. It connects Del San Fernando road in Huayapam (north, upper end) with Mexico 175 (south, lower end). Suggested usage is north out of the town of Huayapam on road Del San Fernando to its junction with Trail PD. Turn right (east) onto Trail PD for a non-technical run down to Mexico (Highway) 175. Stay on the west shoulder of Mexico 175 for a short (downhill) distance to the paved road, La Paz, aka Hauyapam-Oaxaca. Turn right (northwest) up this road to return to Huayapam….or stop and have a beer/meal at the restaurants by the two lakes just at the La Paz and Mexico 175 intersection.
