El Camino de Costa Rica HIKE

Earth Day 2017

Today I joined a group of supporters of the new coast to coast trail called
El Camino de Costa Rica
Hiking an 11 km section, with 8 km uphill! Very difficult.

One of many vistas along the trail

It was all on roads, mostly gravel

One of the many very steep uphill climbs (2 dropped out early)

We cossed and followed several streams

Passed a continous flow of small, poor farm houses

Had breakfast in a little rural Soda

And our after-hike lunch at a rural trout farm restaurant

Enough participated to fill a tourist bus!

We did just one small section of a 263 or so km trail coast to coast and as the project proposes, walked through small farms in rural Costa Rica, this one in the Talamanca Mountains west of Cartago, but going through no town. See the video introducing the trail which uses some of my bird photos:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7euE5oQPC8


And if you would like to donate to the development of this trail through “crowd sourcing,” go to the website: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/el-camino-de-costa-rica–3#/
BACK IT!

  1. Mark, when you move here you can get on their mail list and try to make some of the hike the trail supporters make, usually once a month and mostly one day hikes. Though a few have done multiple day hikes and even the whole trail in 15 days!
