Description

Once the climb at the start is out of the way, the majority of this road is an enjoyable descent with superb viewpoints and rougher trail sections. There's not an official name for this road, but it is sometimes referred to as "La Puerta del Cielo" (Heaven Gates). It has the best views of the city and lots of paraglider activity. The road is wide and loose and the "Quiebrapatas" section in particular is rough.
