HikingGreat!Snow

Did this back in October 2016 and absolutely loved it! Very diverse hike and when I went there was still a little snow on top that made the little lake look incredible. Just had quite a magical vibe up there, I loved it and will definitely be taking my wife here one day! Hike starts at the town/resort and heads towards the big lake. As you approach the base of the mountain on your right, it gets dry and dusty with cool views of the lake on your left. As you come around the base of the mountain you enter a river valley that you follow all the way up to the Refugio and lake. This part is in the woods and has plenty of welcomed shade. After wiggling through the woods and passing an odd shelter, you poke out of the greenery. The valley becomes rocky and the vegetation is sparse. It’s not too long from here that you approach the lake and Refugio with a little hike through a bit of snow. The crazy pointy rock formation “bowl” on top that the lake sits in was incredible and well worth the hike up. Highly recommend going while there’s still snow on the ground up there. Makes for cool pictures and an even more diverse hike. If I had the appropriate footwear, I would’ve continued the scramble to the next lake, but I certainly wasn’t disappointed! Went back the way I came in and caught one of the last buses back to Bariloche. I started really late in the day, so probably won’t be an issue, but check bus times just incase.

I hiked this in Feb of 2020; I found that there were a few muddy/damp areas along the trail but nothing that hiking boots couldn't handle. The terrain/scenery varied along the way, with a steady climb upwards. The views at the top are wonderful, but prepare for the wind! If I ever return to Ushuaia, I'm bringing ear plugs for this hike!

We went halfway this trail, because we started a little too late on this one. The views at around 500m altitude are amazing as well. The views of the area and Beagle Channel at the summit should be incredible I guess. It's a demanding trail, recommended to start early.

Fee

it's a steady 8km track with only a slight pull towards the end (if leaving from the post office). At present, the trail is very boggy and muddy in places and there is horse muck almost the entire length of the trail. the guide book says you have great views of the beagle channel, but you don't really. You get good woodland sections and pebble beach walking experiences along a pleasantly undulating trail. The walk has yellow markings, but there are small stints where the markings are absent and it's at those sections when markings would be useful! Odd design. Overall, it is a lovely walk in the national park.

The views along the trail were amazing. The trail itself is more like a walk than a hike, not challenging.

Delightful trail easy to start gradual for the most of it. A few steep sections at the end and an absolutely stunning view most of the way that got better at the top. Busy but not crowded and better on a sunny day.

Very easy hike and totally worth it. Starts relatively flat through a lovely forest with occasional stream views. When you emerge from the forest and see the glacier, continue walking toward it and you'll find a gorgeous glacial lake.

HikingScramble

Great hike with good perspective of Fitz Roy, et al at the top. Unfortunately for us, there were a few clouds covering Fitz Roy but the 360 degree views all around certainly made it worth the hike, anyway. I also had some serious wind to fight on the final push to the summit. A few days before, we were in Torres del Paine park with a wind advisory of 70 KPH. The wind at the top of this hill was every bit that strong and gusting higher. At the windiest point just before the summit, I was on all fours a couple times, crabbing my way up. The vast majority of this hike I would rate as easy-moderate, and only the final push is hard. If, like my wife, you choose not to summit the hill, you will still have excellent views from the lookout (the tip of the triangle in the map). We hiked at a leisurely pace. My inexact app showed 11.57 miles and 6:33 of hiking time. A great hike - highly recommended!

500 Pesos Eintritt. Ob es das wert ist? Scheint nicht so. Wir sind einfach nicht rein ;-) sondern am See entlang gelaufen.

Nice forest walk along the coast! Very accessible and easy walk with beautiful views along the way. Took us about 4h with many stops for pictures and lunch along the way. We also spotted some dolphins and saw quite some birds along the way. Park & transportation fees (from Ushuaia) make quite the costly trip though.

First to Review

The trial is straightforward and mostly flat. The lower falls has a minor decent at the beginning and ascent at the end. The views are pretty wonderful in spots but none nearly as breathtaking as the Devil’s Throat.

Excelente caminata. El final es tambien una subida empinada pero mas corta que Laguna de los Tres. Vale la pena hacerla.

Un incontournable d'Ushuaia! Une très belle vue qui se mérite! un sentier tres bien marqué de bonne qualité, réservé à ceux qui n'auront pas peur de grimper 1000m, mais comme le trek n'est pas trop long cela se fait assez rapidement (2 bonnes heures de montée à un rythme normal) le petit plus de ce trek, à peu près au milieu, 200 à 300m de tourbieres où vous pourriez mouiller vos chaussettes et colorer vos pompes en marron...

Overcast day, so unfortunately didn't get to see Cerro Terre. very windy and started to sprinkle on the way back. Still a beautiful and worthwhile trail.

This trail has some great views for a small effort. It seems to be the only place to see open plains. It got crowded with non hikers, so early start might be wise. I modified the hike a bit to go over the summit at the Eagles end. The wind, the wind, snd more wind. Be prepared. There would be fabulous views of the major peaks when the clouds clear.

HikingScramble

This walk starts by taking the cable car and chair lift close to the ridge line. From there it is a difficult 3 miles. First with a mile long traverse across a rock field. The several descending scramble before reaching the refuge. Locals will tel you 3 or 4 hours. Our inexperienced group took over 6. This effort comes with wonderful views. This area is all open to the weather / sun. Leaving the refuge for the walk back to the cable car base the ground is generally good but the dirt is like talcum power. And just as slick. This is a long slog. Few views as rewards. Experience needed for thus hike.

I hiked only to the Mirador near the end. The view from there was excellent, looking down the lake we had hiked to a couple days earlier. A great view of Cerro Fitz Roy from another angle then we had seen before.

Hiking

A long tough climb but probably the best view you can get in Tierra del Fuego National Park if not the entire Ushuaia area. Depending on the bus/cab you take you’ll probably start near the visitor center and make your way to the trailhead at the lake. There is no cell reception here so you’ll want to have arranged your return ride ahead of time. The brief walk along the lake is flat, but once you reach the fork towards Cerro Guanaco you’ll start climbing almost immediately. You’ll only get 1 or 2 views for the first 3 miles in the woods, and honestly it’s a bit of a slog. It’s fairly steep and in rainy conditions I could see it being quite slippery. It was also quite muddy even after a few clear days, trekking poles were invaluable for navigating around. Once you reach the tree line the views start and never get bad. The last 2 miles are completely exposed and can get windy. You’ll be walking on some pretty narrow and slanted rocky paths, nothing that felt too dangerous but you’ll want to watch your step. The last mile was a bit of a death march uphill with very few switchbacks. The view when you get over the top of the ridge is worth it though. You can see all the way to Ushuaia and straight down the beagle channel towards the ocean. Behind you are the many mountains and valleys of Tierra del Fuego, both Argentina and Chile. It was all stunning on a clear day. The climb will cause some people to pass but if you can make it you’ll be rewarded.
