Hiking, Backpacking, & Mountain Biking

El Carrizal, Colón, Querétaro, Mexico

Secure Hiking, Mountain biking, & Backpacking Adventures

Rancho El Carrizal represents over 2,100 hectares (~5,200 acres) of semi-desert wilderness and pine-oak forest in the El Zamorano mountain range with privately controlled access.  Feel free to backpack, bike, hike and backcountry camp as long as you and your family or friends desire, with or without a guide, having the peace of mind that you will not be disturbed by anyone other than native wildlife or the occasional cow. 

Come explore over 32 kilometers of trails cleared for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback-riding with GPS tracks and photographs from each trail uploaded for free public view and navigation to Wikiloc.com.  All our trails are well marked with detailed navigational signage where appropriate, and occasional miradors (scenic overlooks).

Some of our most scenic and popular trails include:

If your group so desires, follow one of our certified local guides on a wonderful hiking adventure to some of the more remote and stunning natural places on the UMA Los del Carrizal.  Certified local guide services begin at only $400 pesos per day per group.  

And if your feet get tired, horse rentals start at a mere $600 pesos per day, and mountain bike rentals at only $300 pesos per day!

Make your hiking or mountain biking adventure into a multi-day adventure by incorporating tent camping in the backcountry or a cabin rental.  And let our local El Carrizal families provide catered meals for your group during your stay, starting at only $250 pesos per day per person.
