4/5 based on 30 reviews on the web
Both challenging and rewarding, Mount Alava treats adventurous hikers with sweeping views, crisp mountain air, and lush green scenery. The climb takes visitors over verdan hills and up steep metal ladders, all the way to a lookout spot offering vistas of the beach down below.
