Ascent Trip ReportA lovely four hour all round hike up Cerro Ajusco. A lovely day hike starting at 8.30am from Ajusco pass (from the main road). Sunny weather, great company and views...what more could one ask for? You start through a mixture of nice footpaths through pine forests then get up onto a lovely little ridge outside of the treeline. The last two hundred meters is an easy scramble and then you gain the summit where there is a nice cross. This is Pico del Aguila (the summit of the eagle) and then you drop down another col and gain a secondary summit namely Cruz del Marquez (Cross of the Marquis). You then drop down into the woods again to finish where you started.
