“It's glorious return...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

over a year ago, the park which is very,very large had a bad fire. It was brought under control and it has taken a while, but mother nature has it's way of cleaning house and rejuvenating it's forests. This is Mexico, so things grow so much faster than other parts of the world! May trails have been restored for walks or for the morning and early evening joggers. It is a grand scale park-forest, and will be for centuries more on the west side of this large metropolis!

“Nice place to visit and see Nature!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Took the family there for the day to the Rio Salado. The waters are warm and nature abounds. Fishies nibbled at our feet as we relaxed at the waters edge. The kids splashed around in the little pools along the river. It was a good place to cool off and relax. Not sure how far from the city it is since family took us and we went to Tequila first then headed there afterwards. :) Have fun exploring!!

“Unexpectedly nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

Giant forest very close to Guadalajara. Lots of trails for walking or bycicling. It is a very big patch of forest, but if you follow the trails you simply cannot get lost. You can see how big it is when flying into Guadalajara. Caution: during dry season be careful with forest fires.

“A breath of fresh air”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

One of the must-visit places in Guadalajara. Beautiful vistas, hiking paths, flora and fauna. We went on a three-hour hike and brought lunch and saw thirty varieties of trees and birds from as far away as Costa Rica.

“Nature a close, but hidden ways away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

This is huge forest is the size of Guadalajara, and just next door. But entrances are a bit hidden and harder to get to than they should. Two main public entrances are to the Rio Caliente (hot creek) and Mariano Otero.
The first has lots of families, and is best to do on weekdays to avoid crowds or need to go a good ways down stream (first empty parts of the river can be too hot). It is on the road to Tequila just past Pinar de la Venta.
Second entrance is really aimed at mountain bikers, but there is some wonderful hiking as well.
Other 'hidden' entrances also exist.
