Parque metropolitanoEcuador is home to a great and growing mountain bike scene in South America, with growing trail networks all along the region. Today we are looking at Metropolitan Park, one of the mountain biking hotspots from almost the start of mountain biking in Ecuador, that has never failed to deliver the best quality trails from easy to technical. Located in the center of the capital Quito, it is one of the most popular parks in the city with around 200 km of trails.

Tackling some corners.Metropolitan park is home to several races of XCO regional series and national champs, downhill regional events, national events, and many other rookie events. Also, many riders have taken their first steps in mountain biking here due to the location of the park and a wide variety of trails.
