Are you looking for a stunning mountain bike outing in Mexico? Then come with one of our guides to Desierto de los Leones, the oldest protected biosphere in the country!
Situated entirely within the Federal District, Desierto de los Leones (Spanish for Desert of the Lions) National Park is part of the Sierra de las Cruces mountain range. Encompassing an area of 1,867 hectares, this amazing park has no lions and it is not a desert, but offers a perfect opportunity for mountain bike adventures!
On this mountain bike outing we will ride on amazing single tracks through a really scenic terrain. The park is characterized by its lush forests of pines, oyamel firs and holm oaks. We will also discover beautiful brooks, ravines and waterfalls, and some historical spots such as the XVIth century Carmelite Monastery.
You need to bring sport shoes or boots and comfortable clothes. It might get a little bit cold cold, so please bring some warm clothing too!
So, if you want to explore the mythical Desierto de los Leones, in México, please contact us! Let’s live an awesome mountain bike experience!

What People are Saying about Mexico Adventure Guides-
Daniel and his partner Alex did a great job guiding us, and helping with all the logistics, especially transportation to and from the climb. Alex was a real pleasure to talk with, learn from, and show us the mountain. Thank you, for a great experience!
Daniel was kind enough to pick me up promptly at the airport when I arrived. we drove straight to amecameca and bought a few supplies, we then drove to Popo park and set up camp. Daniel gave a class on crampons, walking sticks and the ice pick and then it was time to sleep and prepare for the early morning hike start. we set off around 0330 and reached the recluso at about 15,500 feet. it was an amazing experience with wonderful views. Thank you Daniel, Alejandro and Yasmin!
