Exposed most of the time. Beautiful views of the valley.

Hike was beautiful, but entrance fee was insanely expensive and trail management was poor. We entered through the CONAF trailhead, camped at the campsite Camping Los Porteadores, and started the hike there. Entrance fee was CLP 29,000 per person, which was about 45 USD (the ranger said that part of the trail was owned by 3 different private owners). It included one night of camping, but the campsite was minimally managed, with one dirty and full porta loo as its only facility. The worst part was that we were harassed by a separate private owner at the end of the trail, because apparently we were not supposed to use their part of the trail if we only paid CONAF the entrance fee. It was a beautiful hike, and yet we felt cheated somehow.

The single most beautiful trail I have ever hiked in all my 45 years of backcountry backpacking. Getting to the trailhead is extremely difficult. We took a ferry to Chile Chico And then hired a local outfitter to simply drive us to the trailhead. (We hiked from north to south) The trail Involves crossing Rivers at least 50 times. We hiked in late March so none of them were above our thighs. But the water was freezing cold. We saw 3 people on this trail. We saw zero litter. No a single twist tie. We did not hear a single engine. Nor Airplane. Nor other person. We walked the 16 miles of the x-83 into Patagonia National Park and then connected to some trails to Cochrane. Stunning.
