This trail has a medium difficulty. The tour starts at Ensenada Bay, where the information sign is located, and ends at the intersection of National Route 3 and the access road to Acigami/Roca Lake. The total length of the circuit is 8 kilometers (one way). During the walk you will border the coast and go through some slopes of different levels. Some sectors of the trail are usually very muddy, so it is necessary to wear  trekking shoes.
