Exploring Old Railroads near Quito

During the first half of the 20th century, one could travel by train from Quito to San Lorenzo, a small town near the Colombian Border at the Pacific Ocean. Today, going on a train is only possible between Otavalo and Salinas, representing a short part of the 370 km railroad it was before.

Nevertheless, there are impressive remains of this old railroad not far from Quito. The most exciting part is between the stations of Tumbaco and Puembo, where the train crossed the Rio Chiche Valley.

Today, a cycling route follows the old railroad. The journey of 23 km starts in Cumbaya and ends in Puembo. For lunch, stop at the restaurant Canon del Chiche at the bottom of the Rio Chiche Valley, the restaurant is open only on weekends. Hikers should start the hike at the Interoceanica Route, at the end of Tumbaco before the Bus descends to the Rio Chiche Bridge. At the end of your walk in Puembo are plenty of buses returning to Quito.
