Atitlan slickrock

The Lake Atitlan basin is home to some of our favorite trail. The Atitlan Slickrock is one of them.

We packed up the old town team bus and shuttled high into the mountains above the lake. The first part of the ride is a ridge ride at 2600 mts.

After a couple steep technical drops the trail turns to rock and steadily climbs its way to the top of the mountains at 2800 mts.

Once at the top it's a whole mess of singletrack down to the bottom of the madre vieja river valley.

The trail turns to the sky once more for the last time before pointing back down to the lake and our digs at la Casa del Mundo.

There's gold in them thar hills that's for sure....and we found 30 kms of it!
