Trail Description
About this trail
A very hard circuit, for advanced riders only.
With a wide variety of terrains, Cancha carrera is definetly one of the bests downhill trails of Santiago.
In the top, it is very technical with difficult sections through loose rock-gardens and anti-cant curves, with hardpack to loose-over-hardpack conditions, but as you are going down, it becomes more flowy, with nice zigzags, gaps, jumps and fast turns. Finally, in the lower section, it goes deep into forests, passing over more tighten rock-gardens and with several fast zigzags.
It will keep you on fire all the way down, but keep all your senses clear so you do not miss the trail.
It is recommended to go with someone who knows very well the area, or at least having a GPS with you, because there are many crossing roads and some easy-to-miss sharp turns that may lead you to dead ends.

Es un circuito muy exigente sólo para pilotos de nivel avanzado.
Con una gran variedad de terrenos, Cancha carrera es definitivamente uno de los mejores descensos de Santiago.
Arriba, es muy técnico, con secciones muy difíciles, a través de rock-gardens muy sueltos, curvas con contraperalte, con terreno compacto y tierra suelta sobre suelo compacto, pero a medida que baja, se vuelve más fluído, con buenos zigzags, vacíos, saltod y curvas rápidas. finalmente, en la sección más baja, se mete en bosques, pasando sobre rock-gardens más firmes y con varios zigzags rápidos.
Te mantendrá prendido toda la bajada, pero hay que estar alerta para no perder la huella.
Se recomienda ir idealmente con alguien que conozca bien la zona, o al menos llevar un GPS, ya que hay varias huellas que se cruzan y desvíos que són fáciles de pasar por alto y así llegar a lugares sin salida.

Review: Long climb up and Fast!! ride down. Spent about 25% of the time hiking up while carrying bike. Must check in with security Guards at the gate before riding the trail. Ensure you get emergency contact phone number from the guards prior to going up. A lot of people get hurt on this trail. Watch out for horses and hikers. Great photo's and outstanding ride.
