邻近 Loma de Zaragoza, Guanajuato (Mexico)

"La Bufa" is the probably the prominent geographic feature in Guanajuato city and the most climbed. It is a relatively easy climb and the panoramic views from the top are outstanding.

While I start at the Colonia Universitaria, just above the Panoramica, There is a more commonly used parking lot next to an Electrical Substation a further west on the Panoramic near the Hospital.

And, while this destination is usually done as an 'up and down', after climbing the summit, this route returns by traversing east along a series of small hills, then following a trail down to Pres de la Olla, just west of 'El Faro', the lighthouse. Alternatively, you can hike to Calderones, easily visible from the traverse and return by bus to Guanajuato. More adventurous hikers can follow the steep canyon to the southeast of Presa de la Olla but there is one tricky section near the bottom of get around a waterfall.

Start of the trail in the Colonia Universitaria. Head up into the Colonia, keeping left at the first fork and look for a fence next to this yellow home (and usually a few cars parked here). The trail traverses to the right.

The trail is following a gravel road/track until it turns sharply left just after the caves and a shrine dedicated to San Ignacio.

A shrine dedicated to San Ignacio (Catholic Saint Ignatius). Every July 31, a mass is held here. Sometimes this day is referred to as "Dia de la Cueva" (Cave Day) in Guanajuato.

Looking south. This knoll is the highest point in this area. It is a little tricky to get up but worth it (although I haven’t mapped it yet).

Looking back west at one of the hills to the east of La Bufa. Our road veered a little away from the edge at this point but, there are great vistas from there if you choose to take a ten minute sidetrip. You can see an access to an abandoned mine in the side of the hill.

    ¿Se puede hacer solo esta ruta? ¿O sabes de un guía?

    Muy buena ruta. Sólo me asusté un poco porque cerca de comenzar a subir la cima me encontré a un cholo que se veía muy sospechoso, por lo que tuve que ladear una parte.

    I've done almost all this trail. I started from a different point, the one that starts at Isste, but then followed the whole trail. It has very nice views and it's not to hard to follow. I have an advice though if you, like me, go alone. Watch out your surroundings cause not often but sometimes there are robbers around this area. This was my four time here and this time I saw a very weird and sneaky guy following me with a mask and gap and when I saw him and said hello, he acted very strange and trying to chase me. I had to run for a while until I found another two hikers (the only ones there plus me); then I didn't see the guy again.

    Muy buena ruta, la única parte moderadamente difícil podría decirse qué es el inicio ya que tienes que escalar un poco para subir el cerro de la bufa. Es muy recomendable estacionarse cerca del ISSSTE, eso acortaría un poco la ruta pero hay más espacio, ya que donde se marca el inicio de la ruta es una cuadra cerrada con casas en donde está complicado estacionarse. Muy buena ruta para los que iniciamos en este mundo del senderismo.
