Day Hike - La Cumbre
9:00 AM
Oaxaca Lending Library
Description:
There is an ecotourism camp deep in the woods at La Cumbre, located at the top of the first ridge of mountains to the north of Oaxaca. Dense forests cover the steep hillsides throughout. A number of hiking trails and old logging roads wend their way, maintaining tolerable gradients by following the contour of the land. The forest is a great place to find solitude and observe the various birds and plants that make it their home. We will first hike the Cabeza de Vaca trail, then climb up to a lookout tower with a terrific view of the surrounding area. There is a 40 peso admission charge. Sack lunch required. Motion sickness alert! The ride to and from La Cumbre may induce dizzyness.
