Day Hike - Etla Valley Walkabout
9:00 AM
Oaxaca Lending Library
Albi, one of our assistant hike directors, is also an avid mountain biker who relishes occasional rides in the Etla Valley west of Monte Alban. Many of the roads and trails in that area are well suited to hiking. Based on his extensive knowledge of the region, he recommends this outing as a classic ramble through the rolling countryside between the villages of San Andrés Ixtlahuaca and San Felipe Tejalápam. Participants will enjoy some delightful scenery as well as fresh air and exercise on the hike itself, and then a pleasant lunch at a neighborhood restaurant on the way back to Oaxaca.
