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 spent about 3 months fishing and hiking around Argentina a few years back. This was by far my favorite hike of the trip. The scenery changes so many times throughout the hike, and the water is turquoise blue and crystal clear. Fishing was absolutely incredible too. Would recommend this hike to anyone even remotely close and looking for a hike of a lifetime.

Totally worth it to hike than taking the lift up. Beautiful 360 views at the top!

I have never given a trail a one star review before so this is a first. The trail itself is incredibly dusty with a fine dust that gets in everywhere, including your lungs and eyes. And no sign of a view until you get to the top. While the view from there is good there are many better trails to chose from in the area.

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.

This is a great easy hike with the last half mike a bit steep. Well worth the effort. There is a lot of parking on the street right where the trail enters the trees. This avoids the short road walk. We started around 10 am on a very nice Saturday in February. Very little traffic until we headed down. No one to obstruct views.

Great walk through ancient woodlands to lake beach, with some regeneration area in the middle. Well marked and easy to follow route. Good for families with lure of swim in lake. Start early to avoid the crowds. We started 9:30 and no one else. Photos are in reverse order from end to start

Fine, if you want to save some bucks and not do the cableway (500 pesos). Bit slippery with sand on stones at steep parts, No views until you reach the top.

All reviews are pretty accurate... A great trail with a mixture of shade and sun. There’s also a mixture of shrubbery and old growth forest. Then there’s a rocky portion up high. Views are outstanding everywhere. Trail condition is excellent when I hiked it in early December.

Hiking

Scenic hike to a beautiful mountain lake and refugio. Starts out relatively easy at the ski center, cabs should know how to get you there. First half is fairly easy as you make your way relatively exposed along the mountainside with great views of the Bariloche area and its lakes. After that you get into a pretty strenuous uphill section for the last several miles. It was about 7.5 miles for us one way, so a decently long day if you’re going out and back. We camped at Refugio Frey for the night. It was decently windy in January but almost all of the campsites have nice stone barriers constructed on the windward side, giving you a nice sheltered area to pitch your tent (you should still stake it well though and bring some extra guylines just in case). At the lake there are several trails you can take to explore around the area if you’re feeling extra energetic. Overall it was a fun hike, a little boring on the 2nd half but the end made it worth it, especially if continuing on to Refugio Jakob.

Excelente sendero por el bosque con vistas muy lindas a los lagos. Muy fácil. Lo hicimos despacio porque es nuestro último día. Pero lo pueden hacer hasta personas mayores.

Espectacular! Las vistas son hermosas y a lo último tuvimos un poco de nieve en el sendero. No es tan difícil como dicen si tienes un poquito de experiencia en senderismo. Lo recomiendo 100%.

Fantastic trail, with amazing view at the top. 4 hours one way at moderate pace with large backpack for overnight stay in Refugio (definitely recommend!) first part provides little shade, but the trail moves into forested areas after about an hour. The last hour is quite steep and includes climbing over some rocks. When we walked last week, the last 5 minutes of the trail included a walk in snow.
