Looks like there is a chapel (at least some kind of building with a cross on it) up behind Ajijic that can be hiked to from perhaps Galeana or Juarez.  I think I’ve seen early morning hikers/walkers climbing up there and was wondering where the trail starts, its condition and what the story is behind the building.

Any info would be appreciated…

Yes I know that at the top of Juarez and a little to the West, next to my home is one of the trails to the little Chapel. Another trial starts at the top of Colon and a little to West next to the house on the uphill side of the top road near Colon.

It is a popular hike and enjoyed by many.

It's a good trail, moderate difficulty. The destination is called simply "La Cruz" or the cross. I think the whole point is that you suffer somewhat to go up there to say your prayers.

We hiked up to the Tepalo waterfall yesterday and it wasn't much fun. Not surprisingly there is not a drop of water anywhere, hot and dry as a bone up the mountain. Coming down is a bit treacherous. The views are about the only thing to go up there for, imho.

Carry a walking stick for coming off the mountain. Lots of loose rock. Don't wander around mountain after dark!
