  • Great place for hiking! You need to bring a good apparel and coat, just in case. Great views and it is a good option to have a contact with the nature.
  • One of Mexico City’s most popular and attractive hiking spots is the rather ominously named Desierto de los Leones (Lion Desert, literally). Not to worry though, as you’re far more likely to see hordes of hikers, bikers and families tackling the craggy trails of this spectacular national park, than you are to see lions roaming amongst the trees. The trails to be found here range from moderate to difficult, but all are easily located and followed. One of the most challenging hikes heads to the park’s highest peak, Cerro San Miguel, which clocks in at 12,400 feet above sea level.
