Need to Know

A paid parking lot is located 0.25 miles from the start. An early morning start, around 6 a.m., is recommended

Runner Notes

Recommend good trail shoes, as major portions of trail are very technical.

Description

It is recommended to start early if you are planning to run this popular trail up El Cerro de las Tres Cruces, Three Crosses Hill. This will ensure that you are running with other hikers and runners and will beat the day's heat, as the trail is mainly exposed. Parts of the path are quite steep, and you may need to use your hands at some points. Therefore, don’t bring items that you don’t need, so you can have your hands free. And be sure to bring water or money to purchase water, as there are vendors selling fruit and juices along the way and at the top. There is also a small exercise area at the top with some rudimentary equipment.
