near Jericó, Departamento de Antioquia (Republic of Colombia)
Our guide Jaime took us on this loop up a path called "la Gruta" to the top of Cerro las Nubes, along the ridge, then back down a path called "Los Aguacates."
Going up and along the ridge was easy and very rewarding, with great views. The descent was tricky. It's overgrown and you have to be very careful to follow the path exactly to avoid getting into thick mud. (Without our guide we would've gotten covered with mud.)
Overall it was a worthwhile hike.
FYI: We could've done it 30 minutes or so faster if not for our guide, who was a bit older and not in prime physical shape like we are.
