near Colonia Olimpo (Casas Blancas), Guanajuato (Mexico)

This trail can easily be done in both directions. One can catch a bus up to Calderones and get off at the turn off to Mineral de Cedro or start at the low end by walking up through Cerro de los Leones in Guanajuato.

The trail starts a couple of hundred meters from the Mineral de Cedro although at times there is not much off a trail. Past an abandoned water tank/reservoir, there is an option to continue heading up to the peak straight ahead (which I’ve climbed from other directions), I angled down in the general direction of Guanajuato and Pastitas. Crossing the long dry draw ahead proved a little difficult, following a rough cattle trail and encountering a long section of thorny brushes. I suggest wearing appropriate clothing or taking the high route toward the peak before descending above the low brush. I ended up crawling through sections to avoid the thorns.

The route is often open country so different routes are possible. I like following the long dry ridge towards Guanajuato before descending along an old former track blasted out of the cliff side above Cerro de los Leones.

I rate the trail as moderately difficult because of the open country requiring basic navigation skills (although it seems impossible to get lost in the high open country; also because of the rough trail in places and abundance of thorns on the lower route.
