The southern tip of Baja has been an adventure sport destination for 30 years, long before there was a paved highway to reach it. Come see for yourself why people come back year after year.
Cog Wild invites you to mountain bike the extensive network of single track available right outside your door in Los Barilles and La Ventana. We promise you will be surprised by how lush the trails are as you marvel at the most diverse cactus population in the world from a well maintained trail. Come prepared to be awed by the incredible views from hard packed ridge lines, excited by granite features and slabs, and thrilled by the purpose built trails, accompanied by a refreshing sea breeze and best enjoyed with friends.
On this new and improved tour, we will start in the small fishing town of La Ventana, founded in the early 1940s by the La Paz pearl diver Salome Leon. The pearl of the area is now the acclaimed mountain bike network which we will spend our first couple of days riding. These trails are some of the most scenic trails on the peninsula and will leave you begging for more.
We will travel from the beach to the mountains and back again, visiting the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range. These 7000 foot tall mountains that rise from the sea will beckon you with its evergreen forest and alpine lakes. We will venture into this unique wilderness with a trip to the historic town of El Triunfo where we will ride through the Cactus Sanctuary and El Valle Perddito before heading to Los Barilles, the adventure capital of Baja. In Los Barriles we will ride our favorite old and new trails, showcasing the best singletrack the area has to offer. Other adventure options include hot springs, waterfall hikes, and snorkeling the coral reefs at Cabo del Punto.
Your accommodations will be at La Ventana Resort and Playa del Sol, charming resorts by the sea. From your lodging will see why Jacques Cousteau called the Sea of Cortez “the aquarium of the world”. The turquoise waters, recently declared as a UNESCO site, drop dramatically right off the coast and are host to whales, manta rays, and thousands of varieties of tropical fish. Every day following your rides you will have a myriad of options to take advantage of your sublime location. Kite boarding, paddle boarding, and snorkeling are just a sample of the temptations that await.
Between adventures you will dine on the fresh, delicious local fare, including the best fish tacos in the world at El Viejo. Cold beers and margaritas will relax you at the end of each perfect day as you wind down and get ready for what awaits the next. What are you waiting for? Baja is calling and you must go…
