Description

Patch of grass next to ranger station. Toilets and flowing water from a pipe .

I took the backroad from Chinchina to the fork in the road called Las Trillizas. From there I wanted to go to the nevado but i encountered tour guides in lifted toyotas that told me it was not legal in a motorcycle to go there.

So I instead rode down here to the ranger station and they confirmed they would not allow me to go to the end of the road.

So from the ranger station I rode to Villamaria to make a loop.

I would like to add that the road from Chinchina to Las Trillizas is challenging. Mud holes, rocky sections, few stream crossings, steep sections. You definitely need 4x4 and high clearance, too narrow for big rigs. It was a blast on a motorcycle.

The road from here to Villamaria on the other hand is quite easy.

Both had great views.

A quick update on the road situation:
None of these roads have been maintain in… well no one up here knows, so let’s say a while! We came up from Villamaria based on previous post and glad we did. It’s by no means an easy road, pretty rough with the odd mud section. First 10 kms aren’t too bad but then it turns in high clearance 4x4 or moto only. You could pull it off in a high clearance 2x4 but… if it rains you’d be mscrewed in a few places (and it rains a lot up here!)
As for the other 2 roads coming up from Santa Rosa or Chinchiná, they are a no go for the average mortal individual! We were told by various people up here DO NOT GO! Mso we are not going to try that… deep mud holes, rivers that could get to close to 80cms deep if it rains up high, ruts, rocks, boulders… the locals don’t go that way more. See photo of the truck the tour companies use, gives you an idea!
So unless you are getting around in a 4x4 or on a capable moto… you don’t really have access to the park, which is a shame as it’s pretty stunning up here (see other post)
