The trails are alright, but I expected a lot more from the place. A lackluster hiking spot, considering you have to pay to get in. There are free spots within an one-hour drive that make Chipinque seem insipid.

My wife and I did the very short drive from Monterrey to the park for the first time this last Saturday. There is a fee to get into the park and another small fee to be able to drive to the end of the road (total for both was 85 pesos). It is a steep winding drive, but the views... More

There is wildlife, like squirrels, whitetail deer, black bear and many birds, as well as reptiles and many insects. You can find a Hotel up there with... More

We came for an archery competition and even though it rained and was muddy we enjoyed the park. It makes me want to go back and hike.

If you visit the busy city of Monterrey, Mexico and you have time for a good exercise in a healthy environment, try Chipinque. It has been adapted for every member of the family and it has both easy and difficult trails. And, for the mountain biking lover, there is no place like Chipinque. You have to try it.

The park is above the hustle and bustle of the city, and it is often a little bit cooler than down by the river. There is a restaurant with views of the city and valley below. There is an olympic-sized swimming pool. I don't know the hours, since we have just driven up there to look and see what there... More

It is one of the most awesome natural places i've visited in Nuevo León. You can practice hiking, cycling and enjoy the wonderful view of the city. During any season of the year you can go to Chipinque and stay relaxed in the Nature.

It happens frequently to locals: we take our mountains for granted. Then a visitor comes and we see them through their eyes; just then we rediscover how beautiful they are. To call them, we use a word in Spanish that actually means "hill" (cerro) even though they´re real mountains. You need to be a skilled hiker to climb "Cerro de... More

We were 12 person in the trip to Chipinque. It was awesome, the trail is good. You can either choose to take the hill step or the tar road. We had a simple picnic at the la meseta, it was breezing and I felt bit cold and foggy, its totally different weather in Monterrey. We had a slide there too,... More
