Ascent Trip Report

One of two volcanic peaks on the island of Ometepe. The other, Concepion, is higher. Maderas is in a cloud forest, so even in the dry season, the trail is extremely muddy. Most of the hike is thru dense forest so views are limited. There is a lagoon at the top but visibility was poor on our visit due to fog. You may see monkeys on the trail. The muddiest hike I have ever done.
