  • Route all amazing! I was in the off season, so there was no one. But it's flagged up. Round trip took me around 4:30 (rest/rise/descent)

  • The day dawned amazing. Sunny and the sky is beautiful. We arrived in the "parking lot" of stone ($ 10) and we start our trail. The weather was turning.. When we get to the Plateau we saw five minutes of scenery which were covered by a huge cloud that kept us more. We went to the Stone. The path is well marked. What "complicates" are the obstacles with air branches of trees and kills a little closed.. some forks, but nothing too complicated. Did the path without a guide. The owner of the trade in the various tips on the tracks, which helps a lot. But if you feel insecure, nothing prevents a search tab. There are several for you. We were advised take enough liquid, because of the altitude. I didn't feel hungry.. just seat myself. The course is in good part (especially at first) rising. What is exhausting enough. And believe me, at the top of the peak of the sealed (two stones ingrimes, paralelas...com about 5 m tall or more) has a book for you to sign and let your passage. It's hard to get it, but some people can. Don't worry about pen, next to the notebook has some. Good luck!

  • Get ready for a long walk, some 3 hours. Is not steep, only Woods, but worth every step. Don't go on rainy days and bring water and some fruit.

  • Moderate level trail with incredible vision. Access by dirt track, well demarcated and signposted. Worth also visit other peaks in the region.

  • Loca with 360 degree views of lush nature take shirt off as time closes quickly and cools down easy track plato then begins to close. Let your adventurers book but to get to the record book is the hardest part.
