Huasteca Canyon is about 32 km (20 mi.) w. of Monterrey on Mex. 40 to the village of Santa Catarina, then 3 km (2 mi.) s. The magnificent rock gorge of Huasteca (wahs-TEH-kah) is located in Monterrey Heights National Park (Parque Nacional Cumbres de Monterrey). The sheer walls reach heights of 750 to 1,000 feet. In places the softer rock has been eroded into curious formations. Restrooms, a snack bar and picnic areas are on site.
