Trail Information: trails are various, unmarked and challenging as well as beautiful. run along a river for 7 miles before climbing 4,000 feet out of this 6,000 foot deep canyon, 5 or 6 miles of rolling trail crosses la sierra running thru oak trees then pine forests before descending 4,000 feet on some very rocky trail, then less so before crossing the urique river and rolling about 5 miles on dirt road to the deep canyon town of urique at the bottom of urique canyon

Miscellaneous Information:: I would encourage any adventure runners/hikers to experience this uniquely beautiful and diverse region of Mexico.  If you would like an experienced trail companion/guide to show you around, then I would be happy to do so. www.coppercanyonrunner.com or www.coppercanyoncaballoblanco.com/pics/
