Cusco's Backyard Singletrack

Full Day


Total Distance: varies (approximately 18 km; 11.5 miles)

Climb Arrow412 m (480 ft)   Down Arrow2,373 m (3,825 ft) Max: 3,985 m (13,075 ft)

Ride time: 2.5 - 3.5 hrs.

Shuttle time: 1.5 hrs.


We’ll shuttle and ride some of Cusco City’s most prized local singletrack: Yuncaypata, Huayllarcocha, and Salkantay Pueblo Trails. These trails are without a doubt where many of Cusco’s and Peru’s best riders polish their skills. Both trails feature trailheads that sit above Cusco City (3,800 m; 12,467 ft.) and then plunge downward towards the city along fun mountain bike trails that skirt Incan ruins like Sacsaywaman and small villages that make up the outskirts of Cusco. We’ll finish our last ride with a secret alleyway descent into Cusco’s Main Square (3,400 m; 11,155 ft.) – known as La Plaza de Armas.


The Cusco's Backyard Full Day Tour can be adapted to offer MTB trails for intermediate to advanced level riders. Your experienced mountain bike guide will ultimately decide which trails are appropriate for your group, from scenic climbs to urban downhill!
