Canyon Hiking Tour - Tlaquepaque

Hiking trips

Guadalajara has many locations just out the city to go hiking. We do every week a trip to one of the following locations.

Parque Barranca de Huentitan

Located in the northern outskirts of town, this impressive public park surrounds what could offer one of the most rewarding views in Guadalajara, the Barranca de Huentitan. A deep canyon, shaped by the Santiago and Rio Verde rivers, the Barranca serves as the home for many endemic species and as a paradise for bird watching.

There is a very steep cobblestone trail on the south side that starts at the edge of the city and goes all the way to the bottom of the canyon. The trail is recommended for those prepared for a somewhat challenging hike. Good walking shoes are a must!

Once at the bottom of the canyon, we hike along the river to el Puente de Arcediano that was constructed in 2013. The park can be reached by bus in about 45 minutes from the center of Tlaquepaque, and makes an excellent day trip.

A view of the Barranca can also be enjoyed from various lookout points within the Guadalajara Zoo, which is located adjacent to the park.
