Pasachoa is not easily accessed by bus but is easy by car. Once there, they offer some basic exhibits near the trailheads and several trails through the lush setting. The longest trail extends above the treeline to the summit of Pasachoa. It is an all day hike with significant elevation gain. This is an excellent place to acclimate for climbers.

Rough driving to get there, but a hiker's dream. Try taking the "other" way out and get a great back--roads tour through cattle farms and tiny villages -- extremely RURAL and interesting. Just ask anyone on the road for directions (there are NO signs) "Sigue, no mas!" -- "Keep going!"

It's easy to miss the turn off the main road, and the 6 km of rough cobblestone and dirt road to the site take time to cover, although the countryside is beautiful. But hiking at Pasachoa makes a great day trip from Quito. The facilities are pretty basic, so bring what you need. There are picnic areas and open grassy areas for large groups. The entrance fee is reasonable. What's nice is the variety of hiking trails, pretty well-marked and maintained, from an easy nature trail to an all day hike up the mountain. Lots of birds and interesting plants.
