How much walking is involved in reaching San Borjitas site? Esp vertical climbs? I'm recovering from Gout and up & down is difficult. La Trinidad? Thanks ahead of time. Tio

Tio - I would say San Borjitas is less than a mile and maybe 100-200 ft vertical gain. It's a bit rocky as it follows the streambed in the canyon and then climbs up the side. Discover Baja said about 20-minute hike. I stopped a lot to take pictures so I can't recall how long it took. Maybe with some hiking poles or a stick it would be doable for you?

Trinidad is also rocky. Maybe longer distance but less climbing.

Just a note... We couldn't prearrange a guide because we had so much to see and do so we took a chance and drove to the ranch at the end of the San Borjitas signed road. It was great as we got a guide, Ernesto, at the ranch.
It was 150 pesos per person, 45 pesos per camera, and 300 pesos for the guide. You drive about 2 miles to the trailhead and then hike 1/2 mile with steep parts to the cave.

We passed on La Trinidad.

We hired 4 guides at San Francisco de la Sierra for El Raton Cave which is a short walk from the parking spot. Similar charges.

The guides for San Pablo Canyon were from someone Curt LeDuc knows in town.
