Incredible lookout over Rio verde canyon 18 km south of Guachochi on gravel road. Picnic sites with fireplaces and palapas, toilets for 20 pesos/person. (Entrance sign says open from 8am - 5pm, but we arrived at 6pm and the guard still let us in.) Hiking path down to a small waterfall.
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
No camping allowed anymore. New management apparently. Cost is 100 pesos now to enter the viewpoint. Can't drive down into the canyon anymore but can walk to a suspension bridge. Overall not as exciting as it sounded before, but the viewpoint is still incredible and worth it ! One of the best in the canyon area.Report Check-In
This place is incredible. We paid 20 pesos each to enter. There is a sign at the view point for the trail/road down to the waterfall. It says 4x4 only and they are not joking. We took our stock Toyota pickup truck down and had at least one spot that pushed our clearance. The turns on the switch backs are tight and we had to back up and reposition on a couple. The drop off from the road is very steep. You wouldn't want to not make the turn. Views are amazing all the way down. No place to turn around before you reach the bottom. The top where the Mirador is at about 9,500 feet, the bottom of the road is around 7,200. There is one gazebo along the way, and one at the bottom. This gazebo at the bottom where we camped has level-ish parking backed up right to the gazebo with large fireplace. We had to clean the fireplace of a lot of un-burnable trash. We had a lovely 2 nights camped here with large fires. We saw no one on a weekday. Down here is a river and a suspension bridge that takes you to a trail that continues on down into the canyon to see the waterfall. We hiked this very steep trail about an 1 hour and 900 feet down and we're able to find a viewpoint of the waterfall we think we made it about halfway on the trail down. We think the trail would take you all the way to the bottom of the canyon. Dogs welcome. Zero facilities down here. It's pretty cold at 7,200 feet.Report Check-In
Great view. Little pools on the left of pedestrian bridge which is about a 4km hike from viewpoint. We were alone for 2 nights. Some tourists came on Saturday afternoon.
The access gate is now always closed, people living in the green house open and close it after each vehicule.
The place is really nice. Toilets running water. 20 pesos. But is not 7 kms. Is about 18 kms. It took us 1 hour from Guachochi to get there.
Exactly as described, beautiful place. We paid only 10 pesos per person. Arrived there at 5:30 pm. Toilets but pretty much out of usage. Very quiet and beautiful view.Report Check-In
