Ascent Trip Report

While visiting family in Queretaro, I hiked the road to the summit of El Zamorano. I dropped the car in Los Trigos, right in front of the middle school (Telesecundaria). I then followed the road all the way to where the TV antennae are and took the stairs all the way to the summit. I had some nice views of the Queretaro and Guanajuato semideserts before heading down. I briefly talked to the workers on the way down, we wished each other a happy new year, and then headed towards the car. On the way down, I saw three mountain bikers and a man taking 2 kids on a motorcycle. Also, I saw some nice mountain biking trails on the side of the road. Not much has changed based on the latest trip report (2014) and even though there are gates in some areas, the people are friendly enough that they'll let you get through them with no problem.
