Pacha Trails

The place where mountain biking began. In the 90s first mountain bikers knew that these amazing lands were the ideal ones for this new sport. Since then many things had changed, but the spirit remains with new trails built for the new generations.

Season: All the year (some trails could be unavailable from July to October).

Average Stats: Pacha Trails I: 300-500 mt Positive Elevation / 20-25 Km average / 2:30-3:00 hours effective riding time (Beginners to Intermediate).
Pacha Trails II: 600-1000 mt Positive Elevation / 22-30 Km average / 2:30-3:30 hours effective riding time (Intermediate to Advance).

About the Place:

Maybe is not very known but Lima is surrounded by mountains on the east side. So for mountain biking, we have to move at least a bit more than one hour depending on the place we choose.
Pacha Trails are the best and nearest, at the southeast of Lima in the mountains we know as Lomas de Pachacamac, the name becomes from the God Pachacamac, ruler of the earth, that lived in this area for two thousand years.
The mountains known as Lomas de Pachacamac are high enough for giving us the chance, during the last 30 years, to ride our bikes, and today new trails are getting built for the new generations of mountain bikers.

About the Rides:

Pacha Trails I: Targeted to riders not ready for tough climbs, usually beginners and intermediate levels. With less than 400m of total climb, and 60% of the whole trail on singletracks.
Pacha Trails II: This is a 75% of the ride on singletracks and 600 or more meters of climbing, targeted to intermediate/advanced skill riders and well trained. Available the the whole year, except when it rain (more frequent from July to October) 
If you are on the starter level or not well trained to make some tough climbs, or ride on narrow tracks you must start on the first option.
So is very important to know your skills and training to choose the right trail.
If you think singletracks could be a bit difficult to ride, then choosing the Pachacamac Valley on a gravel road is the smart choice.


Lima weather has practically no rain from November to May, so during these months, all trails are 100% available. February is the hottest month reaching easily 30°C at noon, so leaving very early is recommended.
Starting from June weather changes and rains start, but is during August and September, with 15 °C as the average temperature and as the constant humidity, mist and drizzle wets the ground, so riding the trails becomes an impossible mission. Weeks more, weeks less, we never know. The weather has no rules. If that happens we must move the ride to a less technique and more endurance one as the Cactus Trail (C-D on the map).

What to bring:

Try to bring your basic equipment: helmet, gloves, protection, and SPD pedals available by request.
During summer (jan-mar) 2+ Lt of water and sunscreen, and in winter (jul-sep) add a wind vest or a couple of layers.
