This trail is also the first part of “Horns Lookout Trail”. There is a small parking lot at the trail head.

I enjoyed this trail however had to turn back after 9k because I was running out of water. I started early and it was cool to see the sun rise over the city. Some good views once you can see into the next valley, but there was a haze everywhere in the Santiago region (smog, dust?) so you could not see very far. I parked my car on the side of the road (residential neighborhood) near the start of the trail. From there, you get onto a dirt road. The trail is not marked so I had to rely on the GPX track dowloaded from AllTrails. I took a wrong turn when crossing the creek at around km 6. If you get to a locked gate with a "No Passar" sign, you turned to cross the creek too early. Go back and continue up the trail until after you see two large rocks with white writing. The actual trail crossing was quite overgrown with blackberry bushes. Just after you cross the creek you will see a rock face to your right (see picture), and the trail continues to the left. The creek was still running at that point (late February) but dried up further uphill.

A great starting walk for anyone exploring the park. There is parking at the base (very near the campsite) whixh leads straight onto the trail. A couple of climbs (the first climb feels tougher than the last climb) but manageable by all. A short and sweet walk with amazing panoramic views from the top.

Ein schöner moderater Wanderweg durch den Wald. Man hat zwischendurch eine herrliche Aussicht auf die einzelnen Seen.

Nice hike in summer. We had a beautiful day. We hiked w-trekking in Torres del Paine a week before without problems, but felt our knees after this one. The Miradors are nice, the park fee quit high. (7000 pesos per person and 2000 for parking the car)

Windy AF. But probably the best views of life. You see the two peaks the entire time you walk the trail. So what that you’re almost taken away by the wind? So what that you feel like Dorothy? So, ya the wind is pretty intense, but man, the views are spectacular. So worth it. 1 - 1 1/2 each way walking real slow. U gotta treck up a road from where the bus drops you off at Pudeto and the start of the trail, but if u dont get carried away by the wind, you’ll be fine :)

A long day with some serious elevation gain but absolutely worth it for the view at the top. The first 2.5 miles are entirely in woods going uphill along long switchbacks. You break out into the open for a short time before heading back into the woods for another hour or two. During this section you’ll go up some seriously steep and smooth areas of the trail. These areas were a bit overgrown at times as well, which was sometimes nice for the things to grab and annoying otherwise. The real pain here was coming back down later with crowds of people going up, lots of traffic jams and close passes. Around 4.5 miles you’ll get out of the steep woods and be fully exposed for the remainder (bring sunscreen) which is great considering the views you have around you. You can pick any random direction at this point and probably see 1 or 2 volcanoes poking up. I think we ended up counting 8 total, and we probably were missing a few in the haze. You continue going uphill until the end, with a bit of scrambling to get around the rocky areas. There’s a lot of nice places to enjoy the view and lunch whenever you feel like you’ve had enough. Make sure you bring plenty of water, the climb up and the exposure at the end are killers.

Amazing views. Bring a sandwich to the summit and have you lunch on top of the world, surrounded by (I counted 7) snowy vulcanoes... i started recording after about an hour...

Mostly flat trail, well maintained and easy. The only obstacle is the wind. We apparently got lucky and the wind was ONLY blast rain on our face but didn’t blew us off the trail.

Nice comfortable hike. My wife and I started in Coyhaique and walked to the reserve. We only went from the trail head and did the loop around lago verde and returned (this still took about 2.5 hours at a leisurely pace). The views are excellent and the trail is very clear. I would recommend although it is $6000CP in high season.

Nice hike with good views, on a good weather day you can visualize the glacier that is 15km away, weather conditions can be harsh. Get to see beautiful icebergs and cross a strong suspension bridge

Great hike with beautiful scenery - particularly further up the trail including 1st lookout at about 1050 meters. Previous posts might have noted that it is quite muddy so make sure you wear your gaiters. We were fortunate to have sunny weather - would not recommend in wet weather.

Sentier pas toujours bien indiqué et en plein soleil. Apportez beaucoup d’eau, voire un pique-nique pour prendre une pause bien méritée au sommet. Randonnée relativement facile, très accessible lorsqu’on n’est pas pressé dans le temps!

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!!
