El Ocotal is a forest in the Cuajimalpa delegation in Mexico City with many trails for running or hiking. Just 30 minutes from the center of Mexico City, the best time to visit El Ocotal is on the weekends, when it is bustling with runners and walkers who want to escape to nature. Ocotal means “ocotes strewn ground” and showcases native tree species such as fir, ash and pine. There is one running circuit of about 2.15 miles. There is not parking available here, but you can park the car on the narrow street that provides access and in some farms that operate as public parking.
