“Climber's choice.”— Renato Hernández
There is only one main track to follow so you can't get lost. Once you get to the farm please make sure to close the metal gate. From this point, I can only tell you take it easy, stay hydrated and eat some snacks from time to time. Most of the people take two, three or four stops to recover and take some nice pictures of the city. If you are lucky and the sky is all blue you'll have the chance to see Cayambe and Cotopaxi volcanoes.
Once you get to the top, just relax and have fun as you are 3800 meters above sea level (12,467 feet). It is very windy up there so be sure to have a nice light jacket and please make sure not to litter.
On the way down, just try to stay to the right side of the trail since you'll probably find more people climbing.
