Ixtepeji is a wonderous mountain that sits above Oaxaca at 10,500 feet and holds within it a pine and insidious forest that is home to a plethora of epic mountain bike trails. This trail system is a perfect intro to the singletrack trails in Oaxaca and filled with loamy singletrack, playful features, and incredible views. The Ixtepeji trail builders have put in hundreds of hours of work to be able to develop an absolutely stunning trail system, and their hard work shows. Trails like the Cerezo and Llano Carreta will blow your mind with their Star Wars like canals that rip down the pine forests of Ixtepeji. This will also be the first day of our Mexico mountain bike holiday that guests will discover the gastronomy of Oaxaca and begin to discover why this is one of the food capitals of the world!

Clients will continue to ride some more technical trails in preparation for one of the most epic trails of their Oaxaca mtb holiday, El Toro!
