Day Hike - Tlalixtac - Los Molinos trail
9:00 AM
Oaxaca Lending Library
We will hike in one of the valleys that drain from the Sierra Norte mountains into the Tlacolula valley. The trail is mostly a footpath that wends uphill through the woods parallel to a stream and with Highway 175 on the hillside opposite. We will pass by the ruins of a small water-powered mill where grain was once processed. We are likely to encounter local woodcutters returning to town with their donkeys loaded with firewood. After the hike we will stop for lunch at one of the pleasant restaurants clustered around the two presas in Huayapam.
