I echo most 5 star sentiments. It's a great hike. Gorgeous views. Wear running shoes, should not attempt in flip flops. There is some climbing and loose gravel. Water is good to have, especially in the hot months. Expect 30 minutes respite at the top. You go at the guide's pace who houses a bunch of dogs. Guide's name is Enrique. Some of the dogs will join the journey. PARKING AND ACCESS: Another tip I didn't see that would be helpful- the trailhead/ gate to Enrique's is 400 feet PAST the steep drive to hotel Grand Solmar. Park in the lot near the marina off BLVD PASEO DE LA MARINA. It's near a Senor Frogs. On Google maps, the gate is labeled, "Dog Training Camp". From the lot, walk 5 minutes east and you run directly into the gates.

A great hike to start your morning! Need to arrive at the dog shelter about 10 mins prior to 8:15am start. If you’re driving...there’s a paid parking about 5 mins walking distance away. Overall you should budget about 1-1.5 hrs for the hike up and down. Enrique will stop to catch your breath and talk about the landscape. There’s a tip jar if you want to contribute!

Enrique is a great guide. He made sure our group all got safely up the mountain and is a good caretakers of the property. He explained why it is no longer public access and he leads private tours. He does not ask for money but has a tip jar at the bottom of the mountain.

I had been to Cabo 2 times prior to this visit. This time I was determined to hike Mt. Solmar. The entrance to the hike is on private property, so you must call Enrique who will be your hike guide. He goes at 8:15am and 4:15pm. He runs a kennel on the property, so a group of dogs will also go on the hike. We had about 11 people show up for our hike. Wearing good shoes is a must as there are a lot of cactus along the route and loose rocks. The degree of difficulty is moderate to strenuous as you do need to use your hands to get up in places. At the top, we were allowed time to enjoy the view and climb on the rocks at the top. The dogs were amazing!!!! Another day, We also climbed over the rocks from Solmar to Divorce Beach and Lover's Beach...pay attention to high tide!!!!

Locals will tell you that you can't hike it, that's a lie. The place opened up 4 years ago for hiking. ENRIQUE is the guide. Two hikes a day 8:15am and 4:15pm. Sundays only 8:15am. He's extremely nice but stern you WILL NEED A MASK. If you're allergic to dogs beware because you will Hike with them. As the hike go he will stop twice to give history about the area. And you'll feel amazing learning about the history of Cabo. He's been there for 30 years! He explains that the name Mt. Solmar is something he and the locals have been trying to change for some time now because it's incorrect. He wants the name of the mountain to reflect the history of the natives that arrived at this peninsula 700 years ago! It's supposed to be called Cerro del Vigia ! The view was the best part of my trip I'm so happy I went and did it. this is DEFINITELY a hidden gem that not even my friends that went there have said they done it. I want everyone to do it. This hike is a little bit strenuous, you will get on your hands to climb. Be aware of that so come light. i recorded the whole hike which I will be showing parts on my youtube (link on my profile) because I can't upload videos here. I recommend everyone to do this if you're looking for something fun, risky, and unique to do.
