Cabo Activities: Mt. Solmar Hiking
Before you start your hike, make sure you are prepared. If you are in great shape, the hike should be no problem. If you are not in top physical form or have health issues, it may be best to forgo this adventure. Next, a good pair of walking or hiking shoes are required for this hike. Flip flops are perfect for the beach, but the rocks along the hike to Mt. Solmar can be slippery and dangerous so flip flops are a no-no. In order to keep yourself safe from a dangerous fall, it is important to wear appropriate footwear. Don’t forget to bring along sufficient water and a snack. In Cabo, the sun’s rays can be quite strong so make sure to wear a hat and sunglasses, too.
Start The Hike
Are you wondering where to start the Mt. Solmar hike? Local tour guide Enrique is the best choice for a guided tour to Mt. Solmar. He owns a dog shelter at the base of the Naval base and hikers have to walk through his property to reach the trailhead. Enrique offers hiking tours that are fun and interesting. Also, dogs are welcome to join on the hike so dog lovers can bring along their best friend. As you hike, keep an eye peeled for snakes that may cross the trail. Enrique or his assistant may regularly whistle which keeps hawks in the air circling for snakes. In addition, the dogs that the guide brings along are trained to alert hikers if there are any snakes as well. As you hike along the trail, take care with your footing and enjoy the beautiful vistas. Make sure to bring along your camera so you can capture amazing shots along the way. When you reach the peak, hikers will be rewarded with amazing views of the sparkling Sea of Cortez and desert landscapes down below.
Only hikers in good shape should attempt this hike as there are areas that are quite steep. Also, only closed toed shoes such as sneakers or hiking boots should be used. Remember, hikers should be in good shape to participate. If someone has health issues or physical limitations, this hike is not the best choice as parts of the trail are difficult and require a bit of semi-rock climbing. In order to maneuver over tough sections, intense leg and upper body work is required in order to reach the top. Lastly, remember to wear a hat and bring water with you so you can stay hydrated. You will be thankful for your water as everyone will be sweating once they reach Mt. Solmar’s peak.
