The walk starts on a normal gravel road, but then the way path  narrower, beautiful and demanding. This trail goes along the edge of the mountain with paddocks with 360 degree views, there are many cows and depending on the time there are blackberries.


After that it gets a little more intense, the slope is quite challenging, you could say that is the best training for those who want to prepare to climb the Chirripó.


After about 3 hours of walking, you will reach the Cerro Dragón. A half hour more you reach the top, the Espalda del Dragón.
