The Bike Park at Rio Perdido

Our permanently evolving MTB circuit attracts riders from far and abroad. Professionals have come for the day and opted for a second day's bout at the eclectic circuit, which offers solid rock segments, sand, raw earth…bridges, ramps, banks, and even a few downhills in the advanced circuit. Of course, the more advanced segments can be foregone by amateur riders or those who simply want a swing-like ride without the rocky climbs and heart-stopping plunges. Riders can opt for different routes, ranging in distance from 8km to over 20km, without having to repeat singletrack segments. While most MTB fanatics would not consider this to be "long-distance," very few riders seem to have the push to double-up for a consecutive second round. That is, riders finish the circuit and they generally opt for a rest in the hot springs. For those not running a time-trial, the route offers amazing stops that include short treks to several panoramic lookouts, two waterfalls, a cave, the remains of a home that dates back to CR's colonial period, and a naturally carbonated water spring that was historically visited by locals who sought its medicinal qualities. Unlike most activities at Rio Perdido, the Bike Park is designed for a focused rider and is not recommended for beginners. Those visiting the BPRP for the first time may want to consider riding with one of our guides.

While riders with experience can enjoy the park on a self-guided ride, to see all of the sights and get the most out of the adventure, we strongly recommend requesting a professional guide. Rio Perdido's experienced MTB guides can accompany you and enhance the experience for $25/hr (2-hr minimum). A guide can accompany from 1 to 5 riders. For larger guided groups, we can arrange for multiple guides.

Riding the trails after dark is prohibited unless the riders receive written permission from a Rio Perdido manager and there is at least one official Rio Perdido guide for every 5 riders. Guests whom desire to ride without a guide can set out to the park between 5am and 3:30pm. For Bike Rentals ask our Concierge at
