  • Terrific for a day hike out if the city. Step walk from the main gate but mostly good track with only a few sections of unformed steps. Great views of the plains and the valleys around Monterrey. Take some water and snacks for the hike.
  • Nice park on the side of a mountain overlooking Monterrey. It has plenty of places to park and have a picnic. It does have a three Banos/sanitarios/restrooms, and they are spaced apart, but not well marked. They seemed semiclean. There is a gate and you have to pay $5 or currently 110 pesos to get in. It was busy on Christmas day.
  • Excellent place to walk while talk with yourself enjoying the Nature and breath fresh air. Also there are places with exercise equipment. =D
  • Amazing place! Very cheap entrance fee! Stunning views, if you're in Monterrey this place is a muuuuuust go! Cheers and enjoy nature!
  • Manageable hike up the mountain. Saw many animals like raccoons and squirrels. Was a great opportunity to look at Monterrey from the top!
