Cerro Tomé in a round-about way


Length: An estimate: 3+ mile loop, elevation gain 400’.  Not the normal route

to the top, we will spiral around from south to north on the east side, ascend

to the top, and then return to Tomè Hill Park.


Difficulty: Moderate-difficult (sections of steep, uneven, rocky terrain). 


Please know your limitations – we will be walking old trails, not that well maintained or defined, and checking out the petroglyphs along the way.  We will also take the ‘old’ way to the top; it is very rutted but does have an old iron hand rail.  The terrain is volcanic, and it is steep.


Exposure: There is no shade.

Trail Surface: Loose volcanic rock

Hiking Time: 2-3 hours

Description: This loop hike will begin at Tomè Hill Park, and then follow the base of the Cerro on an old trail, then ascend to the top.  We will hike to the crosses, then descend and end the hike at Tomè Hill Park.  Following the hike we will take some time to enjoy the sculptures while we eat lunch.
