Very beautiful trail. As others described, the orange bus that runs between Centro - Mismaloya - Boca de Tomatlan can take you to the start of the trail in Boca for $10 pesos per person. You start out in the town and, basically, try to follow the shore along the way. There are multiple trail maps with "you're here" star markers on them along the way. There are a few somewhat steep up and down sections, so the Medium difficulty rating is appropriate. Lots of colourful birds along the way. You'll also cross multiple beautiful beaches. The Colomitos Cove one is quite crowded as boats bring people here. There's a restaurant on the cliff at Colomitos, called Oceanside Grill - we had a terrible experience there with awful service and food poisoning, so you might want to avoid it. There appear to be multiple ways up at Colomitos beach, the one you need is the closest one to the water on the south side, it's a steep staircase up the mountain. As you make your way farther away from Colomitos, the beaches get less crowded. At times you'll need to take a path that seems to go through resort properties, just follow the signs with arrows to Los Animas as that is the beach at the end of this trail. At La Troza we were walking through such path and came across a man watering plants next to several piles of coconuts, so we bought one and it was deliciously sweet and perfectly refreshing for the hike. Once you make it to Los Animas beach there are a bunch of shops and restaurants there. From there, you can keep going to the waterfalls (which we didn't have time for), take the same trail in reverse, or take a boat back to Boca. If you decide to take a boat, on the pier there'll be cruiseship passenger groups, so don't line up behind them, watch for boat drivers calling out "Boca" and wave one down - the boat cost (in Feb 2019) was $50 pesos per person cash only.

Highly recommend this hike! Awesome views, short, somewhat steep hike but you’ll be fine. Enrique is awesome! This was the highlight of our weekend in Cabo! There’s also a parking space next the the oxxo short walk to his house, it’s 36 pesos an hour. You’ll have to be there by 9:30, Estimated time on this trail is 1.30 min

Beautiful views! Short hike, definitely recommend. There’s a short steep section/scramble but truly not difficult. As previously posted Enrique takes groups daily at 0930, and is an amazing guide.

I climbed the peak unguided yesterday. It was beautiful. We had a group of seven guys in fairly good shape. From the hut, it took us 7 hours to the top and 4 hours coming down. The first 2/3 of the hike is dirt and rock with some scrambling and then glacial travel for the last 1/3. Most people do not rope up, but crampons and an ice axe are a must. There are multiple trails through the Labyrinth below the glacier. When coming down, I recommend tracking the trail so that you can follow it on the way down. Also stick to the trails on the left when you are in the Labyrinth. We used summitorizaba. com for our accommodations and the lodging and transportation was fantastic.

Very nice route, great variation. Few sketchy spots if you are mountain biking. Ignore the last bit of my route before the road, not a trail at all just to stubborn to backtrack.

The trail was easy to find and follow. It had some moderate elevation change. My wife and I spent about 3 hours on it. We did some exploring off trail. Amazing views! Saw whales and sea lions. I would highly recommend hiking it.

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!

Didn’t summit but climbed just short of the rock scramble to the top. Used is an acclimatization hike in prep for Ixta and Orizaba. Definitely a doable hike, just take it slow and easy if you are not used to the altitude. Trail was in good condition, and spent the night in the cabins at the resort area. Do it if you’re in Mexico looking to prepare for climbing higher mountains.

What an excellent workout, with a hike like this, just living is not enough❤️ the trail has two beautiful options for a small break on your way up, one will be under gorgeous oak trees. The scenery colors were amazing, it just had rained in the passed weeks so I got lucky with beautiful greens and blues of the sky and sea.

Hike is longer than stated. Must hike from dock in Yelapa unless you get horses to take you.

Marvelous overlook of the entire city. Not hard to find. Shaded, green trail. The area has many more trails of varying difficulty. I wish i had this before the hike: https://www.chipinque.org.mx Hotel Chipinique is a good location to Uber to, 5 min from trailhead. Trick is that Uber may not be able to pick you back up. We arranged with our Uber driver to pick us back up at a set time. Another alternative would have been to walk or hitch the apx 7km (?) downhill back to the park entrance to order a return Uber ride from there. Restaurant, hotel, and snackbar within 5 min of trailhead. Today (sunday) restaurant had buffet only.

Awesome trail. Bring lots apples and carrots for the horses. They look underfed and overworked. Ask for nacho he will show you a second waterfall. Must buy a drink to see waterfall, it is in a restaurant. 2$usd for water per person.

Nice walk along the ocean. Very easy walk or bike path. Great finished project!

Great views. Path has been greatly improved. Anyone who can do stairs should hike this. Take water and go early in the day!

Great hike with great views. It was challenging but a good one. You can get a similar view from the (closed) teleférico station about 1/3-1/2 of the way up, so if you are feeling really challenged you can stop there. We went early one morning and some of the paved parts of the trail were quite slippery, but other than that it was great. A couple of things to note: 1- If you go early in the morning, there are police guarding the entrance, so unless you want to pay a 100 peso "tip" (around $5) to park inside as a "resident" you will need to allow some extra time to find nearby free street parking and walk up the steep hill. 2- If you go early in the morning, same police at the entrance of the road will not allow you to take your dogs on the trail. If you have a good Spanish level, you can wait for them to offer you to pay a "tip" of 100 pesos to let the dogs go to the trail. Be warned, however, that there could be more issues later. A police car with two officers stopped us right before the trail (after paying the "tip") and would not let us enter the trail and also threatened that if we did enter later we could be reported. They parked and got out of their cars and waited for quite a long time at the trail (while we unsuccessfully tried to find other routes to access the trail without them seeing). It's possible that one of the neighbors in the fancy neighborhood called them. Anyway, after hiking back down to the entrance and explaining to the original cop we "tipped", he told us to go back up and quickly, so we did and we were able to hike the whole thing with no problems. We saw a few other people on the trail with their dogs (all friendly and well behaved) and figured they either did the same thing or came later. When we finished hiking about 6 hours later, there was no road block and no cop at the entrance, so anyone could get in. This hike was challenging and we took quite a few breaks. It ended up taking us a little less than 6 hours and was around 6 miles round trip. We are in pretty good shape and hike fairly regularly and work out regularly, so just be prepared that it could take a little longer than you might expect, but overall is a great hike.

When driving, follow signs for the nature preserve- it will be slightly off course from how Google maps will route you. $6 entry fee per person, they accept American dollars or pesos. Clean bathrooms at the lodge and additional restrooms on the trail. Trail itself is fairly short but steep right into the canyon. Sneakers are ideal, but could be done in flip flops as well. Waterfall itself is beautiful but small. The water itself is cool, clean and great for swimming. We overall had a great time but not sure if it's worth the 1.5 hr drive from Cabo San Lucas.

We just did part of this hike from Las Animas to the Cuale Waterfall at Quimixto. It took about 20 minutes and was well worth it! The waterfall was gorgeous and even had a natural water slide. The water was a bit cold but we all went for a dip before having a bite to eat at the restaurant. People can also rent horses to take them up to the waterfall, but this meant that there was a lot of horse poo on the trail - watch your step!
