Rancho Cacachilas Trail Design, Construction & Maintenance

Rancho Cacachilas is developing a system of private trails for mountain biking, hiking, running and riding in the La Paz region of Mexico's Baja California Sur. We take a holistic and responsible approach in the construction of all of our trails. We implement techniques to decrease environmental impact while maximizing soil retention and water drainage. Erosion control is a primary consideration in the development process. In many cases we work with historical trails that have been used for centuries in this region of the Baja California Peninsula. In 2014, Progressive Trail Design created a trail development master plan to assist the design process throughout the ranches. Learn more about our world-class hiking & biking trail system.


Building to IMBA Standards

International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) started training our local crew in late 2014. Under guidance from IMBA experts Shane Wilson and Mark McClure, our local staff built the 9.1 kilometer Santa Rosa mountain biking trail in about 18 months. Since then, our crew has completed intensive IMBA Trail Solutions training that allows us to design, build and maintain additional trails on our own. Using these professional skills, Rancho Cacachilas is working towards creating more than 50 kilometers of IMBA standard, single-track trail and becoming an official IMBA Ride Center.

Don Diablo Trail Run

The 3rd Annual Don Diablo Trail Run is November 17, 2019. Cash prizes for top finishers in two trail runs:  35km Trail Run and NEW 54km Ultra Race that includes a SUMMIT RUN to Picacho de Cieneguitas.
