Nevado de Toluca

Nevado de Toluca road is within Parque Nacional Nevado de Toluca and leads to the crater of the long-extinct volcano Nevado de Toluca (also known as Xinantécatl). Via this road is possible to access the large central crater by car and it is absolutely worth the
visit since from the parking it is a short 15 minutes hike to the edge of the crater but fees has to be paid. The summit area is usually snowy from November to March. The journey is very picturesque, with winding dusty roads amidst dense pine forests with the view of the snow capped volcano approaching nearer every turn. Six kilometers from the crater, there’s a gate, café and basic refugio (rustic shelter). From that point, the crater can also be reached by a 2km hike via Paso del Quetzal, a very scenic walking track. There are a number of lodging options along this road, including a state-run hut at 4,050 m. It is of the highest mountain roadsin Mexico.
