Quito Half Day – Hike
A 15 to 20 minute drive will take us to the Quito Metropolitan Park, an area up on a hill top that overlooks the city and nearby valleys.
Here we find about 22 km of single track trail that ranges from easy going dirt road to pretty demanding single tracks as we hike through eucalyptus forest while we enjoy great views of mountains such as the Pichincha, Cayambe, Antisana, Sincholagua and Cotopaxi among others.
This trail´s elevation fluctuates between 2900 m. to 3050 m. above sea level. If lucky, we will even see some Llamas crossing our path. A beautiful close by location and a great way to get out of the city for a few hours.
This hike can take up to 4 hours.
