Ascent of Volcán Maderas in 2007-02
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||4573 ft / 1393 m|
Ascent Trip ReportOne of two volcanic peaks on the island of Ometepe. The other, Concepion, is higher. Maderas is in a cloud forest, so even in the dry season, the trail is extremely muddy. Most of the hike is thru dense forest so views are limited. There is a lagoon at the top but visibility was poor on our visit due to fog. You may see monkeys on the trail. The muddiest hike I have ever done.
