Lost in the Western highlands

The lads at the shop recently headed out on an exploratory mission to find new trails out in the Western Highlands of Guatemala.  The idea was to find more of Guatemala's secret single-track and bring it into the catalog of Epic Guatemalan Mountain Bike Tours and Adventures at Old Town Outfitters.
We spent 3 days picking our way through alti-plano single-track and rock gardens to find the best new mountain bike tours.  There are some pretty huge climbs out there but the technical down hills make all the up worth the effort.

We think we found the making of a pretty amazing week long tour out there.   This is remote back-country type stuff and you better have your A-game when you come.  There's no better way to see the Western Highlands than from a mountain bike.

We head out here pretty often so get in touch with the shop and sign up for our next tour.  If you like big rides with bigger views, there's no better place the Huehuetengo for an epic out of bounds mountain bike adventure.
