It takes a 30 min hike to climb up the mountain and enjoy the great view. Worth all the while. Bring water with you.

Not a particularly hard walk, some hills, but absolutely gorgeous scenery, particularly the river and canyon, crazy clear blue water. Make sure to get as far as the Refugio Cajon del Azul for a beer and a bite to eat
