Like any trail in Bogota, it can be closed at any time. At least as of early 2019, it was being closed one week every month for "rest." There is a gate at the entrance, and they will prevent your entrance if it is closed. At times, perhaps weekends, people with clipboards ask for your personal information such as name, ID number, etc... I've come at this trail from from the top, and the gate was closed but the guard let me out and was friendly about it.
Need to Know
I've come here and its closed. There is a closure schedule, which isn't the same week every month. Like other trails in Bogota, per my experience, you have to go there to know if it's closed!
Recently, the aqueduct company created a web site, where you have to make an appointment to be able to enter. You can register at gme.acueducto.com.co/visitas/
in order to run in this trail.
Would be very slippery if heavy rains. Great surface when dry. Steep, imbedded rocks. Not many loose rocks. Some roots to trip on. This is a moderate hike, and a difficult run.
Access to this trail is near the entrance to Club Aguadora. You must go up the paved road a little bit and then turn left onto a dirt road that leads up to the trailhead where it turns singletrack. It is a steep trail, but in good condition and well marked. There is dense vegetation all around, but it does not obstruct passage, as this is a well used trail. There are stair step using wood, but the surface is still dirt and not rutted.
I wouldn't want to do this if it just had heavy rain. It is a little too steep for me to consistently run, but people do it. It is a narrow trail so you'll be passing other trailusers, which can be hard at times because it is narrow. It is a good connecter to Caminio de Meta Trail. Security is very good, with a guard at the entrance and near where it turns singletrack, and at the housing community near the top.
