great views from the top. would highly recommend going in the early to mid morning or in the evening as the heat and relative lack of shade can take their toll on you. there are however many rest areas at the switchbacks where you can take a break and enjoy the breeze and take picture.

I would definitely recommend this trail. It is very easy! I went during the day, it was very hot so I’d say go early morning or later in the evening! Once you get to the top they have resting areas or you can go on the bridge for less than a penny! Beautiful views!!!!

We didn’t have the app on most of the way. The trail is gravel or paved rock walkway and then stairs near the top. Nice easy walk. Amazing views of all of Mazatlán from north to south.

Great views. Path has been greatly improved. Anyone who can do stairs should hike this. Take water and go early in the day!

This is an enjoyable little hike that takes you up to the lighthouse (El Faro de Mazatlán) which has been renovated over the last years. A good early morning or sunset workout not sure I would recommend it during the very hot and sunny hours of the day since there's not a lot of shade along the way. It is highly trafficked during most holidays. There's sitting area and trees at the top to rest and catch your breath (if needed) It provides great scenic views of the ocean, islands and the city. If you like a workout, fresh air and great views you will really enjoy it!!
