Trail TPR

Trail TPR (Teléfono Polo Calle (Telephone Pole Road)) is mostly a dirt road. Its main value is in providing passage between the western items (e.g. San Felipe del Agua area trails) and Huayapam area items. Trail TPR follows obvious dirt roads (e.g. Las Palmas) but there is a hike-a-bike creek crossing on the western end of the route. Note that the west end connects with the east end of the LNR ((Libramiento Norte Road) ).

Trail T

Trail T (Tostadora (Toaster)), a member of The Smoking Section collection, is a narrow singletrack that runs down a ridge twisting through the scrub oak and acacia bushes. The upper section, accessible from Trail HFR (High Flyer Ridge) has a well-worn tread and is in the taller, older scrub oak and wide-leaf trees. After a short traverse off of Trail HFR it dives down a ridge line through some short, twisty turns. It turns into a doubletrack tread right before its junction with Trail ML (Mechero Lado (Side Burner)). At this trail junction, cross Trail ML continuing straight downhill (south) through an opening in the vegetation straight across from where Trail T came into the trail junction. From this point, the tread is more prone to being hidden by vegetative growth but generally follows the fallline winding only as needed to avoid bushes. At the bottom, the trail falls to the east side of the ridge and exits onto Trail TTT (Toro Toro Toro (Bull Bull Bull)) along with the west-side ravine. Paths near the bottom that go right (west) tend to be rutted and covered by low vegetation. Thus, at the bottom as social paths abound, generally it is best to go left instead of right when given a choice.

Trail R

Trail R (Rebote (Ricochet)) short little out-n-back (sorta), good for extending the time-on-dirt when running up or down Trail TTT (Toro Toro Toro). Watch out for stray bullets if the Policia are practicing. 😉 Trail comes off TTT and dumps out on Road LNR (Libramiento Norte Road) just a bit downhill from where TTT enters/exits onto LNR.
