This is the Mountain Bike circuit of choice for most people who have some experience in cycling or who have already completed another of our circuits such as the Yungas Circuit and they were wanting more. It goes through natural settings of immense beauty and grandeur. The Quebrada del Toro is the natural communication route between the Lerma Valley and the Puna. For thousands of years It was used by groups of people to move around, hence there are many deposits there archaeological. This circuit begins in the town of Campo Quijano known as El Portal de los Andes (which is up by vehicle) and travels the first part of the Quebrada del Toro, an area with deep canyons and lush greenery in summer. Part of the route of the famous Train to the Clouds is known, understanding how this marvel of engineering and knowing some now abandoned stations such as Río Blanco and El Alisal. With a little Trekking, a beautiful waterfall called “Chorro Azul” is known, without a doubt the point preferred to make a stop to chat, rest and gather energy to continue towards the second part of the circuit.
