Mexico City to Cuernavaca Bicycle Trail

This 40 mile paved bicycle trail along an abandoned train track bed in Mexico will eventually connect Mexico City with Cuernavaca. When the last segment is built the trail will stretch 80 miles between the two cities.

About the Trail

From Mexican trail developer Antonio Suarez of Consultoria Balam: "We have design and built an incredible 40 mile long trail over the abandoned train track connencting Cuernavaca and Mexico City, and the best of it is the forest areas. We have another 40 miles to build but no budget to finishing connecting the trail to Cuernavaca City. This is becoming an attractive destination for inline skaters, but very few of them know about it. We are promoting many other new trails in Mexico, including a seafront trail in Mazatlan that we believe will create an inline skating boom in that town."
