Hike - Cuatro Venados
9:00 AM
Oaxaca Lending Library
San Pablo Cuatro Venados sits near the top of the mountain ridge that forms the western wall of the Oaxaca Valley directly west from Monte Alban. There are tourist cabins there for visitors who want to spend the night at elevation. We will savor the view as our bus climbs the winding dirt road to Cuatro Venados, then enjoy cooler temperatures as we wander through the countryside above the town. Our “trailhead” is on the plateau above the town and is approximately 40 kms (25 mile) from Oaxaca city. You might want to pack a sweater or jacket! Also, there is very little shade, so sunscreen, hats and/or parasols are recommended. Sack lunch required. Motion sickness alert! The ride to and from Cuatro Venados may induce dizzyness.
