There are a number of hiking alternatives in the Los Cabos area but one you might not have thought of is hiking in the Pedregal community. This community is located in Cabo San Lucas and built on a desert mountain, referred to as The Pedregal Mountain. Homes on what we call the marina side have views of downtown Cabo San Lucas, the marina and bay. Homes on the other side of the Pedregal Mountain have views of the Pacific Ocean.
I have hiked in the Pedregal since moving to Cabo in 1998 and always enjoy the scenery. The cobblestone roads weave throughout the community offering a variety of options. I have what I call my short walk (about 20 minutes) that is mainly on the Pacific side and takes me by a number of our vacation rental properties. I can vary this walk by taking a different way back and add 10-15 minutes. I start near the Pedregal Beach and head for the Valley of the Blue Moon, then back home.
For a more challenging walk I have walked to town but lately enjoy walking to the very top where the tower is located now that the road is finished to the top. It is pretty much straight up hill for most of the walk (about 2 miles) but once at the top there is a bird’s eye panoramic view of all of Cabo, the bay, marina, and Pacific side. It’s definitely worth the effort! Of course you can always drive to the top for the view but it’s a great hike with great scenery.
They are cutting new roads in the Pedregal which will offer even more variety in routes. You could virtually take a different walk every day for a number of days.
If you are staying in Cabo and want a challenging walk try the Pedregal next time. And remember we have a large variety of Cabo Vacation Rentals in the Pedregal, in downtown Cabo, along the corridor and in San Jose del Cabo.
