Esta ruta es la más difícil. Pero llegar a la cumbre y observar las lagunas es una de las cosas más espectaculares. Muy recomendada.

No bridge to cross the river near the lake

very good trail, perhaps a bit harder than rated. Great views, suggest aclimitization for two days in CDMX (~ 7,000 feet) and one more at the trail base (13,000). Then for those fit, up and back in 12-14 hours, or if a bit older and/or not as fit, there is a good place to overnight (shelter) or camp at a place called El Refugio, which is at about 15,500 feet and about 4-5 hours from the summit. Really beautiful trail ! Will meet some wonderful people along the way. Of course crampons required to get across about 1/2 kilometer of glacier, just before summit.

Nice trail. Beautiful views of two lakes and the surrounding mountains. We finished our 10km route in about 3 hours. There are several alternative trails that aren’t the official trail, but all are easy to find, and there are enough people walking around that you can always see where to go (you won’t get lost). Keep in mind the high altitude may affect you, so bring plenty of water and take breaks as needed. Oh, and the drive to get to the trailhead was about 1hr 20min on the entry road, and it was very ROUGH; unpaved, rocky, and difficult even for my 4WD Jeep. But it was fun all around and we may come back again!

Very exciting trail, difficult in some sections but with beautiful views. We started at 1am and we arrived to “La rodilla” (The Knee) just in time for the sunrise, this was a wonderful moment. Walking on the glacier, arrive to the summit and contemplate the landscape in all directions was an unforgettable experience.

this is a classic Mexico hike. however you must spend the night before at high elevation. There are many campsites near the trail head at 4000m elevation. serious hiking gear required. Poles a must for coming down the numerous ravelling gravel slopes. I started from Mexico City that day and could not make it past 4900m; body shut down but I did not expect to summit not having had time to acclimatize. even if you make it half the way still a great scenic hike up a volcano.

Climbing to the summit of Ixta is not super difficult if you are acclimated to the altitude. Camped at the Altomoni hut and summit in the morning at sunrise. Good prep for Orizaba if that’s on your climb list. Beautiful at the top with great views!

Very hard, lots of different terrains. From big round boulders to sharp stacked rocks, sand walls and dust paths. I definitely got altitude sick, but an amazing experience. I went with a guide, and used more water then expected.

I did this trail trail as my first higher altitude hike. The views are breathtaking. You drive up to the edge of the krater and walk in to the crater and climb up to the top. It’s way down is one long steep “path” straight down over loose gravel and rock which will take every last bit of energy from the upper legs. Going down with the car I got a splitting headache from the big altitude change over too short of a time.

Amazing trail around the “Nevado de Toluca”. It’s an inactive volcano with a couple of lagoons on its crater

Great hike! Just make sure you get used to the altitude. I am a regular hiker and had a hard a time trying to breath because I am not used to the altitude of Toluca.

We spend the night at La Joya near the trailhead to start the trip the next day at 2 am. That night there was an electric storm that did not let us rest but left the mountain all snowy. Due to the snow that almost reached our knees and the lack of sleep, we decided to arrive only to the Refuge. The snowy mountain, something that does not happen frequently, made us enjoy an incredible landscape. We also enjoy the beautiful views of the volcanoes El Popo, La Malinche and Pico de Orizaba. I will definitely go back soon to get to the top.

This is the second time I visit this beautiful place, the fantastic view of the mountains, the lagoon and also the Iztaccihuatl and El Popocatépetl volcanoes leaves you breathless. A lot of people visit this volcano on weekends. My purpose was to reach the El Fraile, but we took the wrong path, I hope the next time I can do it.

Before I begin, make sure you check out my video of this location here: https://youtu.be/uq33SCfHGiY as it will really help your understanding of the trail. This was my first high altitude hike. It's short and straight forward. Bring water and a camera. The hike will take you to some lakes at the top. The drive (from Mexico City) will take longer than the hike. It's colder there than in the city, so bring some warmer clothes and check the weather before you go. The trail is pretty busy with locals, so you won't be alone which is nice. There is an official that was at the top keeping an eye on things, so you do have help once you get to the view of the lakes if you need anything. Great hike, I would do it again!

Highly recommended. We also went up to the peak. A bit of a slog but well worth it. Going up the gully on the north side of the peak is not pleasant but does not involve the exposed scrambling that is required for accessing from the trail on the south side of the peak.
