Across from the ranger station near Area Recreativa Doña Juana in Reserva Forestal Toro Negro, you’ll spot a narrow trail heading uphill. That’s El Bolo, a 4km jaunt taking you up to a mountain ridge with great southern views.

The trail intersects with first Vereda La Piscina and then, after passing the terminus of Hwy 563, Vereda La Torre, which in turn elevates you even higher (to an observation tower). It’s best to come back down on the same path or on Vereda La Piscina rather than continuing on the El Bolo down to the narrow Hwy 143, which entails a long walk along the main road to return to the start point.
