No closure. Multi day. Park entrance ticket required
The Classic Santa Cruz trek, start at the easier end of Vaqueria. Less ascent than descent and a easy first day.
Need to Know
Below Taullipampa campsite, loose sand for a couple of kms from a landslide, take it easy.
Plentiful water sources, but need a water filter/steripen. Record is 4:17hrs. I did it in 07:26hrs in 2016
Recommended camp spots Paria, Taullipampa, and Llama Corral.
Or run it in a day.
