Excellent acclimatization for those who go to Pico de Orizaba; the path is perfectly marked, the first half is covered with pine trees, when you get to the sandy areas recharge to the right, the road is firmer, so you avoid going up the sands, from here there is no shade and the steep climb begins summit. To lower I recommend the sand, fast and helps the knees to cushion the blow.

Good hike with amazing views. Is slow going due the altitude and would recommend good level of fitness, is steep in some parts. Trail is in good condition, dusty at times. Watch for cold winds at the top.

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.

I would not consider this a medium difficulty hike, compared to the ones I’ve done in the US. I would rate this as hard. I hiked this trail in winter time and enjoyed it a lot. The forest and the view at the summit are gorgeous.

You need a moderate condition and a powerful mind to reach the top, the view right there is amazing.

This is a trail through a beautiful forest. We started very early in the morning and we saw a wonderful landscape at sunrise. The difficult area begins at the end of the forest, sandy and rocky but not difficult. Once at the top, I could contemplate a wonderful landscape and also the volcanoes Pico de Orizaba, Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl among others, being there was an unforgettable experience.
