Runner Notes

Steep and rocky, not ideal for running.

Description

There are spectacular views toward the Pacific Coast. Both oceans can be seen on a clear day from the peak of Cerro De La Muerte. The peak can be extremely windy, and warm clothes are important for the high altitude. Enjoy the views of the unique páramo ecosystem!

Flora & Fauna

elfin forest, high-altitude moors and shrubbery, and lush montane forest at different elevations throughout the ascent
