In total we have a selection of 45 Enduro & DH-specific tracks on a huge variety of surfaces: forested, sandy, rock gardens to bermed up jumps ranging between 3 and 30 mins in length. DH tracks are suitable for both Enduro/ AM and DH bikes. DHers, we will shuttle you to the top or for Enduro riders, as close as our vans can access, and at the bottom be waiting to take you back up again. Maximum of 8 riders per van – uplifts will be fast and waiting time minimal.

To get the best out of the riding here in Malaga, we would recommend you come on an Enduro bike to be able to ride all the excellent tracks which the vans can´t access. Climbs are easy on fireroads with the shortest only 15mins in duration.

More than 10 years ago, Switchbacks discovered the secrets of the previously unknown tracks around Malaga and brought them to the world of mountain biking. Back then there were only 5 trails now we have more than 45 Enduro and DH specific tracks.

There is a huge variety of trails in Malaga from fixed rock and switchbacks to sand and head sized loose rocks. One day you´ll be riding on tracks similar to Moab and the next day you´ll finish on the beach after a 1000m descent on sand! We have 10 different riding locations each with its own special surface that will test your bike and skills in different ways. Combine this with an average winter temperature of 16c – there is no better winter riding experience anywhere period.

" My first trip to Switchbacks Malaga was way back in 2008 when we were testing some prototype RockShox. Chilled out, loose riding under the sun - bloody brilliant! Josh Bryceland "
