The place of departure of our taxis is in the Bosque de Los Tilos, at the stop that is at the end of the path that goes down from Los Nacientes de Marcos y Cordero. Thus, it is much more comfortable for passengers to leave their rental car there to complete the trail and finish at the same starting point.
How long is the 4x4 taxi ride from the Los Tilos taxi stop to the start of the Marcos y Cordero trail?
The journey from Los Tilos to Casa del Monte, the beginning of the trail, takes approximately one hour.
Should I book a 4x4 taxi to go to Marcos y Cordero or are there taxis at the Los Tilos stop that can be hired on the spot?
It is always advisable to book the 4x4 taxi to organize groups and not run out of space. At the Los Tilos stop, priority will always be given to passengers who have reserved.
Our 4x4 taxi makes groups of 8 passengers at 9:00 am and another at 11:00 am.
About 5 hours on average. From Casa del Monte we follow the canal until we reach Los Nacientes and then descend to Los Tilos Forest.
Is the use of a helmet mandatory? Can you go through the tunnels with the light of your mobile phone?
The use of a helmet is mandatory to be able to safely cross the 13 tunnels of the route. The mobile light could be used but the recommended thing would be a flashlight or a headlamp.
Yes. Take into account the hour of the taxi ride plus the five hours of walking, especially if you are traveling with children. Remember not to leave trash on the trail.
