Loved this hike, amazing sunrise. A couple of tough sections once you break the tree line (namely the sand), recommend this

Este es de mis lugares favoritos en la sierra de Querétaro, debes seguir media hr en auto y al llegar al poblado de Cuatro Palos te estacionas, para subir al mirador a pie solo te registras y pagas $20 pesos por persona. Al llegar la vista es hermosa, recomiendo ir en la madrugada para que te toque ver el mar de niebla al amanecer.

This is a wonderful trail, steep but easy to walk. On the way we found a spring of fresh and clean water, we could not resist the temptation to drink it and refresh ourselves with it. The waterfall and the views are amazing! This is a fantastic place to enjoy alone or with the family.

This has been one of the most fascinating trails I've walked. We started watching the sunrise in the community of Cuatro Palos, a very beautiful landscape of mountains and colors. Although the long path was always downhill and rocky in several sections, it was not difficult to walk and the views along the way are incredible. This time we only walked the trail to the community of Bucareli we did not return to Cuatro Palos, I think that on another occasion I will do it, but the downward journey was an exciting and very pleasant adventure.

I actually hiked the Pico Norte trail which doesn't show up on this app. You can find the trail head on Google maps (northwest side of mountain). I recommend having someone drop you off or the security guard will make you walk an extra km through the neighborhood to the trailhead (which is the last thing you need on this difficult hike!!). The beginning of the trail is a bit difficult to see. Hug the fence to the left to find the trail. With an elevation gain of about 4000', it is very steep, rocky, and difficult but very rewarding. Going down was more difficult than going up. This trail punishes you right from the start and never lets up. Fortunately there are abundant small trees and rocks to grab on to as you climb the mountain. Bring at least 2 liters of water for this hike. You need good shoes, good knees, determination, and a strong heart to hike this to the summit. I had a spectacular view of the antennas and all the mountains that surround Monterrey. I didn't see anyone else in this trail which is a plus for me. Start early in the morning when this side of the mountain is cool. It will get hot in the afternoon as the sun changes angle. This trail is for tough experienced hikers with good trail finding skills. There are several markers (ribbons) along the way. It took me 6 hours to do the entire hike to the summit and back (plus a break at the top).

Great hike with some nice scrambles near the summit. I started at 5am and completed it in 6 hrs not including my time spent at the top. Very well marked up until the tree line, then just keep an eye out for orange markers, use common sense for the rest. Keep right of the sand to go up or your slide back nearly every step, but use the sand to go down. Definitely not for a beginner, the combo of altitude and rock scrambles will beat most people down. I clocked it at 13.6 km from the Malinche resort with 1384m elevation gain.

great view at the top, Easy and short trail

This is a beautiful trail through a wonderful river of clear water, full of plants and trees with fantastic views. The amazing thing is that the river is born here.

Did a portion of this while on vacation in 2004

It was so interesting walking this trail to the top of the Cuatlapanga mountain. The events that happened in this place in the history of the ancient tlaxcaltecas left me very surprised, in addition to the wonderful landscape that I contemplated marveled from the summit. I could see the Popocatepetl volcano releasing smoke three times, an unforgettable experience!

Great trail. Rocky, but not a lot of loose rocks. There are almost no flat spots in this trail and your legs and body will know it. There was a wide range of traffic including older men and women (outpacing me), kids, teens, and two trucks headed up for maintenance on the trail and antennas at the top. Don’t underestimate the amount of work your legs will do going back down; take care of your knees and remember that many of the rocks are slippery.

This is quite an amazing hike and one of the most difficult hikes I’ve been on. Starting elevation is 10k and the summit is 14k. When added this elevation to the distance it makes for a challenging hike. But that is not all that awaits you along the way. At tree line you will find yourself climbing a steep pitch of very soft scree if you stay on the default path up to a ridge. Work your way up the fringes and not the middle where you will find firmer footings. Once on the ridge the climb is steep with much firmer footing until you get to a buttress and start boulder hopping where the trail gets very steep again. Just before the summit you get back to a more normal firm path for a short distance. The summit is a short scramble to the top. If you get there on a cloudless day the views are incredible. Start early this time of year because if you are not on the summit well before noon you may see nothing but clouds from the top. We started at 4:00am and were at the summit by 9:00am. I was in a large group of local hikers from the city of Huamantla that were much slower than I usually hike but everyone we saw on the trail were not much faster.

Super easy trail and beautiful views. It is a great spot for camping. For those who would like to visit, my name is Brooklynn and I run a non profit organization and I come here and sponsor the people who live in this location. I take trips here once every two months, we have a community day involved with some teaching, events, donations and we finish the day with some awesome camping and views. Email me if interested.

This is a short trail with amazing views. There was an abundance of wildlife the day I went, including a small juvenile cascabel/rattlesnake under a fire pit rock near the camping area. There was a 20 peso entrance fee that goes to the small remote village on the mountain. The drive to the trailhead from Queretaro was beautiful as well.
