A short day hike to a mine site in the northern Puerto Blancos. This route follows a faint wagon track deep into the most rugged corner of the Puerto Blanco Mountains. It begins by curving around a sheer promontory of volcanic rock that is resplendent in red and ochre. The path then ascends a dry valley, where cacti grow only sparsely. A dusky peak of grayish andesite sits at the head of this basin.
