Hard climb, but worth it. Mar 24, 2017
The trail starts at the same car park as the waterfall but goes straight across and costs nothing. The trail is pretty uneven all the way up though there is plenty of shade. We took roughly 40 mins to the top, with a stop to chat to the 2 vendors of fruit you'll find on your way up there. Should be harder to get lost than find your way. TIP - follow the horse s**t as there are a few horses that make the trip. There's a corral at the bottom and it'll cost you around 5 CUC for the ride up and down, although there is still a climb up some very rough stairs to reach the very top. There is a fine view over the mogotes and the plain to Pinar del Rio. Be very careful at the top as there is a very steep drop-off to one side where the turkey vultures are drifting about in the wind. There is another vendor of jewellery at the top.

Probably the most interesting thing we did in Soroa.

Good tip about following the horse "doings". I love those bird images, they are excellent.
