I had a pleasant day walking around El Bosque Tallado. Firstly, to get there from town, take a remise/taxi to the bottom of the start of the trail (should cost 130 pesos). Hike up a rocky road for about two hours, and then you'll get...More

Mountains and forest come together with these wonderful wood sculptures. Well worth the rough gravel road and somewhat steep hiking. Then venture further uphill to the refugio for a nice snack and refreshments. Beautiful views and variety of sculptures seem to change with each turn...More

Lovely hike at sunset, especially up to the Refugio. It's a shame it's only accessible by car or an expensive taxi ride. The sculptures are very creative and all are very different from each other. Lovely thing to do in a half day in El...More

One can drive up to a parking platform or hike to the platform from town. Then in about a steep 20 minute walk, the sculpture park reveals itself. It is an amazing and surprising find. The artists are inventive in taking advantage of the wood....More

We had a rental car and drove up to the platform to start the hike. I'd highly recommend driving or catching a ride up that far...the walk prior up the gravel road doesn't look very exciting. We passed a couple of taxis on the way...More

I hitchhiked to the trailhead with some other hostelers, and the short hike up to the bosque tallado is definitely worth it. The carved trees are beautiful and intriguing, and the view is unbelievable. Keep hiking up to the refugio, and to the mountaintop if...More

This was a real gem of a find. We set off to climb the Cerro and found this on our way up. We didn't expect it, but loved the sculptures, reflecting traditional art and themes, stuck in such a picturesque setting. It makes you feel...More

I guess that you can get bosque tallado walking around 3hs to the basement of Cerro Piltriquitron, from there you have 1 hour more walking to get the bosque tallado. From there, you can go up another hour to reach the... More
