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.

We left Jalpan de Serra at 4:30am to be on time for the sunrise at el Mirador 4 Palos. We parked the car at the small community of 4 Palos where we had to pay a fee, then we walked up in the dark using headlamps, these were very exciting moments! Once on the summit, still in the dark, we waited for the sunrise contemplating a wonderful landscape full of beautiful colors. I have no words to describe how beautiful the landscape looked when the sunrise started, the colors were changing at each moment in any direction, it was something exciting, incredible! Definitely I will come back again!
