Great ride with a real remote feel. As you can see by the image below, the first section is pretty wild, and it’s easy to get lost. I rode this track a couple of years ago in the dry season when there wasn’t much vegetation, but after the wet, its thick jungle, so much so I couldn’t believe we were on the same track. Plenty of steep mountains, dirt all the way till hwy 1C. The mountains would be very difficult if it rained. There steep, and hard packed clay.

Just to add to Rex's comment..
The start is very steep and we started early and it was wet wet wet.
Really slippery going up.. It doesn't take long to ride..

If I had to do it again.. Would probably leave late and let the sun dry out the track a bit.. As the shade would be like ice and the part in the sun fine..

But a fun ride

Cheers
