I loved this hike with beautiful view at the end. Moderate probably understates the end of the trail where it requires some short areas of rock scrambling. Lots of locals out hiking the trail on the day we went.

Great hike I hiked up the Jacqueline hacienda and came down to high ta blanka. Go through the no trespassing sign everyone was very nice. 3 hour hike. I just recorded the way down.

Great trail. Last 500 meters is quite the climb, but worth it.

Great hike. I suggest taking a couple beers to enjoy at the top. Quite beautiful.

Beautiful hike that gives a nice view of the Bahia de Banderas all the way up the coast towards Baja. It starts down the road from the last stop on the bus to Higuera Blanco and meanders along 1-1.5 miles before beginning to climb to the top of the mountain with the last .5 miles becoming quite steep. Make sure to scramble up the rocks near the top so you can take in the nearly 360 view of the coast and mountains.

Second climb up took the four of us exactly one hour up and about 45 or 50 minutes down. Two people in the latter half of 60s. Lots of families up there this Saturday morning.

I definitely suggest downloading the map from AllTrails because otherwise it would be easy to lose your way. It is mostly shaded and fairly easy walking but gets steep towards the top. There is a small outcrop on top with a great view. On this Monday morning there were several other pairs of hikers out. The hike took us 2 hours return, including a 10 minute break on top.
