Batopilas 105K Map

Batopilas Canyon, in the largest canyon system in the world, a unique descent down the remote Mexican Sierra Madre Occidental. Highest altitude at 2415m, almost 80K of mostly uphill road. Rounds up with a 20K zig zag downhill, (yes, 20K!) to a final altitude of 560m, more that 2300m down the canyon.



Mostly stable trail tread with some variability featuring larger and more unavoidable obstacles that may include, but not be limited to: bigger stones, roots, steps, and narrow curves. Compared to lower intermediate, technical difficulty is more advanced and grades of slopes are steeper. Ideal for upper intermediate riders.
