This loop trail starts at Santa Rosa de Lima, you hike across the mountain to la presa (dam) de Peralillo, return by the Camino Real through the little town of Puerto de Santa Rosa, and arrive to the same point in Santa Rosa de Lima. From the start point (21.07320, -101.19529) walk by the Camino Real, that crosses the town, and about half of a mile to your right you will find the entrance to the trail. At this point you leave the Camino Real behind and start hiking up by the Sierra de Santa Rosa. The trail is well marked, in some sections it seems that you lose it but you find it again easily. In about half of a mile you will reach to a beautiful plain area named Llano Largo, take a moment to walk and admire this place. From this point you start walking down for about a mile until you arrive to the dam (Presa de Peralillo). You will be surprised by the beautiful view of the mountains and small arroyos (mainly during the rainy season). When you get to the dam, leave your backpack for a moment, walk and contemplate this beautiful place, you will love it! People come here during weekends driving by the road.

The trailhead to the Puente de Dios is located near the river just passing the small shops and restrooms (21.19672, -99.60590). The path goes along the riverbank, crossing the river several times using small wooden bridges. About a mile in, you will come across Angostura Canyon; a small section of the trail made of cement goes by the canyon wall. Stop for a moment and contemplate the landscape, touch the crystal clear fresh water and listen its sound. Almost arriving to the Puente de Dios, you will find small springs of fresh water. It is pure clear water. The Puente de Dios is a grotto and a waterfall in the same beautiful place. There are small areas where you can swim. Show more

An incredible trail that leads to an even more incredible viewpoint. The trail leads you through beautiful old growth Oak forest to a spectacular spot where the desert meets the forest. Observe a wide variety of wildflowers and birds, and enjoy a meal at the community cafe. From Cuatro Palos you can see as far as the Pena de Bernal and the Bucareli Franciscan Mission. The community charges a small fee to hike to the view point, with proceeds going to improve the tourist infrastructure of the community. As Cuatro Palos is one of the poorest communities in Queretaro, feel free to bring donations and dog food to the community. Show more

Length: 2.9 mi • Est. 1 h 21 m
This is a multi-use trail open to OHV users, horseback riders, and hikers. Easy trail down a local dirt/sand road through the bottom of a Canyon, with minimal vehicle traffic. There is a washed out stream so the trail is muddy in areas but mostly easy sand to walk in. Very quiet and scenic. There are also some tame horses and cattle walking freely on the trail. The trail head can be reached from the beach or you can drive under the bridge from the highway, where there is parking. Show more
