About the event

About the Hike:  

There is a spectacularly lovely high mountain valley north of Tlacolula about 40 miles (64 kms) from Oaxaca city which is home to El Carrizal. Historically, El Carrizal is a relatively new community. The story goes that about fifty years ago some landless peasants arrived in the Oaxaca valley and were attracted to the beauty of a certain unsettled area in the Sierra Norte mountains. The land in question was part of the communal property belonging to San Miguel del Valle.  There are miles of forest paths and dirt roads in the area just begging to be explored, either on foot or by mountain bike. We will hike out and back along one of these well-maintained dirt roads. There is a per person admission fee and a local guide fee for the group, so do bring extra cash as well as a few coins for the use of sanitary facilities. Participants should pack a sack lunch to eat when we reach the turn-around point at the Lake La Neveria. 

Time frame: 8:30 depart  / 3:15 return to Oaxaca.  / 9:30 pay admission fees & rest stop in San Miguel / 10:30 arrive El Carrizal / 10:45 begin hike / 12:45 lunch break & turnaround / 1:10 resume hike / 3:15 end hike / 4:15 San Miguel  / 5:30  return to Oaxaca. 

Rating: Countryside  /  Moderate  Distance: 5.3 Km.
