Mt. La Cruz stands out for being a physically demanding trekking. It is part of the great Sierra de Ramón, located in the Mahuida Park. It is known for being an excellent training hill in Santiago.
The first half of the mountain is surrounded by typical forests of the central area. Then the hill has a direct slope that leads us to the viewpoint and then to the antennas (False Summit). From this point, you have to get around a small rock climb which does not present major difficulties, but which requires attention. Once this part is overcome, we will go to the edge that will take us directly to the summit.
Once the summit is reached, we will enjoy the views both towards the Andes Mountains and our great city of Santiago. We will be able to see the majesty of large and important mountains, such as the great Apu Cerro el Plomo, Marmolejo, Tupungato and others.
This Cerro is a must-see in the Central Precordillera and is definitely worth the effort!
