near San Luis Soyatlán, Jalisco (Mexico)
Mt Garcia is located on the SW end of Lake Chapala, 9034 ft. (2755 M) to the Summit. The track from Trailhead and back is 6.6 mi (10.6km) approximately 6 hrs. including Lunch at the top. Along a good trail, with excellent views of the Lake Chapala area. The length and elevation make it a difficult hike , but the views at the top are worth the trek....
The trail starts on a Farm above San Luis Soyatlan. I have shown the track starting from the town as it is difficult to find the turn off from the main road; GPS TRACK Directions: turn S at the “Garcia TRN S” Waypoint, follow track to the Farm, Ask permission, and park you Cars see “GRCN FARM TRLHD”. LANDMARKS to TRAILHEAD: Driving from the west into the center of San Luis Soyatlan, look for a building, on a SE corner, that has a green lower part and a door at the corner of the building that is at 45 degrees to each wall. There are no street signs. Turn S up this road, turn W at the second Intersection, rd. jogs Right then left, at next intersection Turn S. This road leads to the farm. NOTE: the Farmers lock up the Farm when they leave, last hike it was at 4:00pm.
