Guadalajara Sights

Parque Barranca Oblatos Huentitán

  • Canyon

Fodor's Review

Known as "La Barranca" or "The Gorge," the multipronged 2,000-foot-deep Oblatos Canyon has hiking trails and the narrow Cola de Caballo waterfall, named for its horsetail shape. A portion of the canyon complex called Barranca de Huentitán (Huentitán Canyon) has a steep, winding, 5-km (3-mi) trail to the river below. The trails are less strenuous at the entrance. Both areas can be crowded mornings and weekends. Take a northbound electric bus from in front of the Mercado

Libertad and get off at Parque Mirador Independencia if you're interested only in the view.
