Nutibara Hill (Cerro Nutibara) & Río Medellín Paths

CC 2.5: SajoR

A great spot for some hill work in central Medellín, with the reward of shade, greenery, and wonderful hilltop views. This is a 2.6 km out and back route to the top of Nutibara Hill. One can follow a path/sidewalk along the main road to the summit and a viewpoint (Mirador). It’s a steep climb — 100m over 1.3 km, with 6-10% grades. There are also several several side paths and stairs. At the summit, there’s also Pueblo Paisa, a composite of a typical town in the region.

Add-Ons: There are several several side paths and stairs in the park. One can also combine Nutibara Hill with Parques del Río Medellín, a riverside pedestrian path that goes for ~1.5 km between Avenida 33 (just north of Nutibara Hill) and Aveninda San Juan, with a couple of pedestrian bridges.
