The trailhead begins behind the restaurant where you park your car. The first part of the trail is signaled with orange marks in the trees and rocks. These marks end when you leave the forest. After that you just follow the trail. Inside the forest part the trail is not complicated at all but once you leave it it gets a little tougher because there are some loose rocks.
Before you get to the top there are a few rocks that can be tricky in damp conditions and then you get to Pico del Aguila after that you descend a little before the last ascend to Cruz del Maquez.
Both places have wonderful views of the city and the surroundings .
On the way down you go thru a pine wood and after that into the same forest as the beginning.
When you leave the forest you go across a creek into a Boy Scout Camp and the Albergue Alpino Ajusco which leads to the Ajusco main road where you walk a couple of miles back to the car.
