Day Hike - Back Way to Tule
9:00 AM
Oaxaca Lending Library
Tule is a pleasant little village located 6 miles (10 kms) east of Oaxaca on the PanAmerican Highway. It is justly famous for the immense cedar tree in the church yard, which is a local tourist attraction. The town (and the tree) are the destination for this hike along the rolling hills that form the southern wall of the Tlacolula valley. The hike begins in the Rosario neighborhood at the southeast corner of Oaxaca and follows a route that climbs along a rocky trail up and over the shoulder of a hill. From there the route is mainly downhill to Tule. The trek should take about three hours. Once arrived in Tule the group will stop for lunch at any of several restaurants or food vendors in the marketplace.
