This is our newest multi-day ride that straddles the Tlacolula and Ocotlan valleys via stunning mountain passes. Meander weathered cattle trails and canter a camino real made by the Spaniards hundreds of years ago. Horse-drawn carts still work the traditional farmlands and friendly shepherds tend their livestock on the open communal lands. Ride through ethnically Zapotec villages. This land is old and has been inhabited for thousands of years. Ride past agave plantations and marvel at the beautiful, massive cacti along the trail. A wetland and a spring draw dozens of species of birds.
