Welcome to Urique
This starry-skied ex-mining village lies at the bottom of the deepest of all the canyons, the spectacular Barranca de Urique, measuring 1870m from rim to river. The trip there is nothing short of spectacular. The mostly unpaved road weaves through rolling pine forest before diving suddenly into the canyon proper. Just past the rim is Mirador Cerro del Gallego, one of the most spectacular viewpoints in the Copper Canyon, with Urique town and river visible far below. From there, the narrow road winds down the nearly sheer canyon wall, a stomach-lurching 15km descent with more hairpin bends than straight sections.
