Monte Sano, Spanish for Mountain of Health, rises more than 1,600 feet above sea level. The mountain has attracted visitors since the mid 1820s with the establishment of the town of Viduta, a derivative of the Spanish word Vida, meaning life. Viduta was home to a sanatorium and a hotel resort, Hotel Monte Sano, which opened its doors in 1887 and closed in the early 1900s due to a declining economy.

My tripod dog and I did this and had a great time. It was very easy for both of us and gave him a couple of places to splash in shallow water. We ran into other hikers, runners, and bikers.

A nice hike. As others have mentioned, the Waterline trail is steep. I banged my knee on the way down and hiked the rest of the trail with a bloody knee. Overall trip took me about 2 hours to complete.

Nice, our boys had a blast climbing on all the rock cliffs.

Very rocky, not scenic at all (or very little), confusing at times---and it's $5 per person to get in the park.

So much fun, and not hard! Very pretty!
