I live in the Estadio neighborhood of Medellin and really enjoy my proximity to Cerro Volador. I can walk from my house (near Obilisco) to the top of the hill in less than 30 minutes.`It's really good exercise and when you get to the top, you're rewarded with an incredible view of the entire valley.
Some people say that it's dangerous or seedy but in my half dozen or so times hiking the hill, I've never felt unsafe. There are plenty of people out hiking/jogging and there are also armed security guards with their scary looking, muzzled dogs. At the top of the hill, there is a small police station and several food/drink stands.
This is one of Medellin's biggest secrets and once discovered, I think it will become a very popular weekend destination.
