The Rancho del Cañón is a protected area extending 625 acres (250 hectares) located at the entrance of the Cayambe-Coca Ecological Reserve.

Trekking along the ecological footpaths is an exciting way to appreciate and learn about the local flora and fauna which boasts a number of species endemic to the area, including more than 160 bird species, tapirs, anteater bears, and many more.
