Path not always well indicated and in full sun. Bring plenty of water or a picnic to take a well-deserved break at the top. Relatively easy hike, very accessible when you're in no hurry!

Easy walk to lookout to view the Glacier and ice bergs

I only managed to get 2/3 of the way up as the last part was too steep for someone who has a fear of heights. My husband went all the way to the top and said it was extremely windy but amazing view.

Great views of the Fitz Roy peak and El Chalten town for a relatively short hike. The trail is mostly sandy with relatively quick elevation gain but is clear and easy to walk and follow. We only went to the Mirador Condores and not Aguilas. The summit was quite windy. This would be a great place for sunrise photos as the peaks appear warm and coppery; sunset is backlit but also fun to watch as the shadows lengthen across the town. We also drove to the information center at the foot of the hill near midnight to watch the stars since there is less light pollution than in town.

Extremely windy walk along the Grey Lake beach. You get a great view of a piece of calved glacier sitting relative close to shore while the Grey Glacier is very distantly in the background. If you walk to the eastern edge of the trail before it turns north, this is where the glacial ice gets washed ashore - you can pick up pieces on the beach. Just don’t get blown away!! FYI, the trail head is at the end of the road, not at the Lago Grey hotel that is under development. There is a nice cafe at both the hotel-to-be, as well as at the trail head.

Fantastic hike with amazing views along the way! We had great weather (dry, sunny, chilly) but it was super windy along the top and was quite dangerous at times. We extended this route to make longer when other connecting trails became clear. Would highly recommend, not too difficult but some challenging ascents that are worth the climb!!

Best waterfall we found! Go see it.... 5 minute walk to it so it’s perfect for all!

Amazing hike! Make sure you stop to see the waterfall! Super easy and fun. Quite a drive from Pucon- 1 hour ish

Wife and I hiked this in mid-March. Short but very steep trail. I wish I would have had poles for the descent. Trail is well marked and easy to follow. The view from the top is stunning and well worth the trip up.

Very steep climb to top of ridge essentially without switchbacks. view of the Paine Massif from the top is extraordinary. also great views into the Patagonia icefield. i don't know how it got labeled as an "Easy" hike. It's not. it's short, but the climb up is hard. Totally worth it, though.

Amazing and do able in 8 hours with loads of photo stops and lunch

Sick as hell!!!

Very nice, easy and peaceful walk.

Can be very windy. The glacier looks like an ice cube compared to glacier Perito Moreno but the walk on the peninsula is nice and makes you feel you walk on a beach.

Super trail. Not crowed at all while gives a fantastic view over the Paine massif. A lot of guanacos on the road.

Nice and easy trail under a summer sun. We started from Coyhaique which added 5km (10 both ways) or so. The track is very well marked and made really accessible. It goes through a lots of forest and lakes can be seen from the trail. It is possible to walk around the Lago Verde lake. Account for 3000CLP to enter the Reserva

Beautiful !!!

Real beautiful hike with nice vegetation and spectacular 360° view of something like 8 volcanos ! It is a 8h hike in total but if you are in shape it is less. It take me 3 hours to go to the top without break and a good speed.

An excellent day on the trail with beautiful views.

Amazing hike. It’s an easy hike without the winds. We had 80km/hr winds hitting us and that was the most difficult. We were here on Jan 2018 and we were told that during their winter, there’s less chances of wind but it’ll be colder with snow. U get to see the view of the horns, base Torres and different peaks at the top - weather permitting. Your first view will be the amazing waterfall. Warning: This place would not be recommend for little kids because winds would absolutely blow your kids away! :)

Took a nice Xmas Eve walk about the town. Went down to the port then continued along the water then cut thru Nuevo Natales back to the church. Went to Xmas mass at the church there, preceded by happy hour at the resto/bar/shop across the street, then hit the pizza place right after mass for a nice dinner. That worked out quite well, what a great intersection...it has everything we needed on Xmas Eve!!

Even with 85+km wind gusts or maybe because of them this was a great and exhilarating hike to a viewpoint that is nice but not awe inspiring. It’s more on the easy than moderate side. Without wind it would definitely be easy. Starts with a pretty waterfall. Not at all crowded when we went in the late morning.

Nice walk trough the forest, beautiful views doable in 4 hours.

The wind was howling but that made it an experience. Take the time to do this. The view IS Torres del Paine!

OMG✨The Dream✨
