One of the few trails accessible directly from Salento, providing some great views of the surrounding countryside.
Taking the last right off of Carrera 6 before the stairs begin to climb to the Mirador, the road quickly becomes gravel. Follow this for about 1 mile.
On the left will be a road with a very well done concrete job. It'll have a sign saying that it was a route Simon Bolivar took. Use the Trail Run Project mobile app
to ensure you take the right one. This road eventually becomes just a dirt road then the Inicio Trail
, like most of the other trails out of Salento.
Simply follow this trail. You'll get some good views of the surrounding countryside. Continue until you exit a gate and hit a gravel road. Take a right here to loop back to town. You could take a left as well and connect with another road to hit the main road to Cocora, if you wanted a longer option.
