| Motorized Transport to Trailhead:||4x4 Vehicle|
|Peak:||Cerro El Pital|
| Location:||El Salvador/Honduras|

Ascent Trip ReportThe drive to the picnic area and restaurants below the summit is steep and rough - high clearance certainly recommended and 4WD if it's wet (and maybe if it isn't). The summit access road is private, or a park, or something, and we had to pay a small fee to enter.
We parked in the highest lot. The walk is trivial (and was crowded) as per the attached GPS track. Just below the summit is a fenced area with guard dogs, but the top is right by a border monument outside the fence.
