The other road from Salinas:
Salinas-Nicanor-Potrerillo-Alto de La Paja-Salinas (Caldas, Antioquia - Colombia) 65
Perhaps the area where this circuit is done is well known by many people in Antioquia, but the direction of flow of the route gives a distinctive touch, making this an excellent choice out to enjoy a short but challenging trail.
The route begins in Salinas Rancherito before Amagá toll passes through the Salinas station and descends to the Nicanor Station. There a nearly 180 degree rotation is done and begins a demanding ascent to the village of Potrerillo. Then one meets the paved road linking the municipalities of Caldas and Angelópolis, which covers a distance of about 50 meters at the end of which is connected with another trail to the right, going towards the Alto de La Paja. From there you walk through a path that was previously filled with trees but now there is even a small shadow. And finally the way down to look again Vereda Salinas, through communications antennas.
Motos for rent at location.
