About the event

About the Hike:

The Mil Rios Trail runs 9 miles (14.5 kms)  from high in the Sierra Norte near the village of La Neveria down to Tlalixtac in the Tlacolula valley, dropping 3768 feet (1148 meters)  along the way. Today’s hike will cover just 3.0 miles of that distance  (6.0 miles round trip) along the lowest part of the trail, which we will access a few miles from Tlalixtac. This will be a moderate hike,  using first the service road going to five small dams strung along the  creek, then a hiking and biking trail going further up the valley. The trail will gain 716 feet (218 meters) in elevation going to our turnaround point. The most challenging feature will be the fourteen creek crossings we will encounter going each direction – though these will be easy enough if the creek has little water in it.

Additional Costs:  There is an admission fee of 20 pesos to hike in Tlalixtac territory. We will stop for lunch after the hike at one of the pleasant restaurants clustered around the two presas in Huayapam. The price of lunch will likely run from 150 to 200 pesos (not included in ticket fee).

Distance: 9.6 Kms (6.0 Mi)  /   Elevation gain: 218 M (716 Ft)  /  Type:  out & back  /  Trail:  dirt road and forest footpath  /  Exposure: 50/50 mix of sun and shade   /  Rating: moderate  /  Suggestion: hiking pole(s) may help with creek  crossings

Time frame:  9:00 am Lending Library  -  3:00 pm returntoLending Library.
