    Hi Norman,
    From the spot marked "PARK" it's only 2.7 kilometers of walking...but it's very steep!

    We parked in that spot because it was the rainy season and the road was full of water. Right now, you could drive much closer to the edge of the barranca before beginning your hike. Good luck and please send me some pictures: [email protected] Thanks!
