I decided to visit the Sótano del Barro and see the guacamayas (macaws) leaving the cave. To do this, I had to leave at 2am from Jalpan de Serra to get to the trailhead on time to start walking and be ready at the sinkhole before the sunrise. Hiking in the dark and on a sloping trail was an exciting experience for me, I had to use a headlamp to see the path but it was easy with the help of the guide. Once at the top, and contemplating the sinkhole, the beautiful landscape and the flight of the macaws, I felt it was worth the effort.

I started to walk up at 4am to see, at the sunrise, the guacamayas flying out . Once at the top the vistas were amazing! the sinkhole is one of the biggest in the world. Walking down and admiring the wonderful landscape was another unforgettable experience..

Climbed both the north and the south face! Spend the night at the refuges. Need plenty of planning and at least a couole days. Summit attempts need to get started during the night.

I did this beautiful trail in the second week of March, although it was a bit of fog, I could enjoy the nice views of the wonderful landscape. An inhabitant of the town of La Silleta with a lot of experience walking on this mountain accompanied us on the trip. Almost at the top, the rocks are too steep and you have to climb them, but it was a nice experience that I will never forget.

The south face is the easy way to hike to the summit. In winter with ice is the best option. The north face is more technical but with ice is very dangerous a lot of fatalities each year.

The first section is very steep and there’s another very steep part, just before you descend. Otherwise it was a great hike with great views!! Also, there are markings along most of the trail to give a sense of direction. Be careful not to follow the marked rocks which lead toward the big beautiful rock formations to your left, as this moves you away from the steep trail down.

Contemplate the city of Guanajuato in Mexico from the mountains that surround it, was a great experience for me. This time I wanted to hike and a guide accompanied me to visit the beautiful area named Los Picachos. Once I arrived to el Cerro de las Comadres, an area with beautiful rocks, I enjoyed a lot the views of the fascinating landscape in all directions. But being in front of the rocks and the cave at el Cerro de la Bufa, and also contemplate the city from there, take your breath away. Walking by the Paseo de la Presa Ave, on the park and near the dam, were also a very pleasant moments. Definitely this was a great trail.

This Trail has lots of surprises, initially with an uphill very tough; once you get to the flat surface after this we had some bushwhacking. You have one cave once the Rock formations start. The interesting part there is lots of butterflies and mosquitoes on the very top.
Second opinion by Alan Antares: It’s a good Trail for training, to begin you will have a steep slope followed by flat-topped mountain where you could see lots of desert vegetation all the way to the top, also you can have a wonderful morning view of Tijuana City and some part of the San Diego CA Area.
