Parque Ecológico Chipinque
Parque Ecológico Chipinque information
Lonely Planet review
A stunning mountainside section of the Parque Nacional Cumbres de Monterrey . It’s incredible that such a wild locale can exist so close to such a large city. There's great hiking and mountain-biking on trails through dense forest, and up to rocky peaks including high point Copete de Águilas (2200m).
Maps, snacks, trail advice and permits for those heading into the park are available at the visitor center located near the entrance, a 15-minute drive southwest of central Monterrey. Free Saturday/Sunday and holiday buses to Chipinque leave from the southwest corner of Parque Alameda at 8am, 10am and noon; be sure to ask when the last bus returns. Alternatively use bus 130 from San Pedro Garza García area (from the junction of Vasconcelos and Gómez.
