“A beautiful trail leading to the Pyramid on top of the Tepozteco.”— Rami Schmittendorf
Family Friendly A great way to enjoy the outdoors and learn a little about Mexican heritage.
The route is fairly short, but the grades are consistently quite steep on your way to the top. Even though it's about 3/4 of a mile to the top, you'll still get your heart rate up!
Once you get to the top, you have to pay an admission fee ($3USD) but it is definitely worth it as you can sit by the Aztec Pyramid and enjoy the view.
