We got lost - but it was beautiful!

Most of the Hike is either along a trail with many roots or over lava rock. We did not experience the view, as a very foggy storm blew in. The resulting finish in the wind, rain and fog was quite an adventure, and made us feel we had earned our cervezas that afternoon. On a clear day it would be easier and more rewarding regarding the view from the cone.

Perfect views and feelings in a jungle. Hard with small kids but possible. Take also pico Gaspar as final.

My friends and I explored the Misterios Negros Trail with Tanja, who is enthusiastic about exploring and hiking and sharing the place she calls home with her guests. We hiked through the 5K (mostly) rough terrain with a zeal to see what’s next, as it went from a standard trail, to mud, to rather large rocks, and back. Tanja will explain the local flora (and fauna) and why they help or hurt the climate on the island as she guides you throughout the tour.

This was a very nice hike. You hike between two volcanoes. The hike is about 5k or 3.1 miles. The terrain is very difficult at times. It was quite muddy and windy in a lot of spots. My husband hiked it though with a 30lb (14kg) toddler on his back.

Sections of this trail made me feel like I was traveling through middle earth. There are a few neat ponds that you walk by, as well as these large hills made of blank volcanic rock that you weave between. In between these hills you sort of go down into little canyon like places where there are these cool twisty trees completely covered in moss and ferns. It's really beautiful. When we did the trail it was rather wet and slippery. The trail isn't really difficult in terms of being strenuous, but there are parts that involve bending over and stepping carefully. The trees grow very low and if you're tall you might whack your head a few times. I wouldn't recommend this trail for people with mobility issues but for the average person it is very doable and a really beautiful hike. Just be prepared for mud!
