Cerro Quitasol: One of the Highest Hiking Viewpoints in Medellín

by | Feb 6, 2018 | Videos | 0 comments

Join me on my hike to the top of Cerro Quitasol, one of the highest viewpoints in Medellín Colombia, located north of the city. This hike reaches a peak of about 9200 feet (2800 meters) with an elevation gain of about 4100 feet (1200 meters) from the trailhead to the peak.

On the slopes of the Cerro, you will find traces of an ancient civilization that possessed an advanced engineering knowledge which allowed them to build a historic stone path route up the mountain.

My friend Chris Blachut of The Unconventional Route joined me on this hike, and we took the hard way up and the easier way down. Admittedly, that man is in MUCH better shape than me right now and barely broke a sweat while I huffed and puffed the whole way up the mountain! A difficult hike, but the view from the top is worth the effort:
