We encourage visitors to Oaxaca to make use of the following information to get the most out of their stay in the Valles Centrales.

More Trails

If you are a real hiking enthusiast and are looking for additional trails to explore during your sojourn in Oaxaca, we recommend you check out our sister web site for mountain bikers:  www.OaxacaMTB.org.  There you will find dozens of additional trails, many of which are every bit as much fun on foot as on a mountain bike. Fact is, many of the trails in the hiking program were first explored aboard a bike.
