On this occasion we share with you an MTB enduro route through the Barranco del Toro ravine in the southern area of the island of Gran Canaria. It is a perfect route to do with an Enduro Mtb or All Mountain bike. It is circular and begins at Las Burras beach. Here you will find a large and safe parking area.
Enduro through Barranco del Toro ravine by bike
This circular route could be one of the most recommended to do by electric bicycle, since it has quite a few technical climbing areas along a cobbled path. That is, only a few will be able to climb on bicycles without motors.
The route begins by going up the road. There is a moment when you can continue going up trails (they are really little technical descents, cyclable uphill). Although if you don’t want to get tired, continue by road to the Fataga viewpoint.

✔ Things to consider before the route
Bring enough water and food to complete the entire route. The track does not go through any store in which to buy. Although we will pass near the Fataga viewpoint, where there are usually quite a few people, but no shop. We also recommend you to bring spare tubes, because the rock can easily puncture you.
