Amazing views, but a bit of a scramble up and difficult down

Too cloudy to see the glacier but still a beautiful trail. Very wet and muddy so be prepared.

Very steep hike but short enough that it’s very manageable and super worth the view. The smog is thick and quite a harsh view at times but the surrounding mountains balance it out with their majestic feel. Definitely need good shoes and the hike up is mostly rocky and the way down is so steep on the sandy rocks that you need proper grip. The hike was not as long as expected. 1hr20 moms up including a handful of breaks to tie shoes and take pictures. My watch said “48mins” of active moving time on the way up. Couldn’t hike down as fast as expected even though it’s not strenuous at all...just requires a lot of focus and concentration of where to step. Great hike in the city, highly recommend. Went via public transport and was able to hitch hike the last few km through the residential area, as there were many people going to hike Manquehue or Manquehuito with the cars. Very friendly :)

YOSEMEBUIN topos 5 climbing.

Pleasant path, quite humid for the region, regular elevations during most of the journey. on the descent, 3/4 of the base, there is a viewpoint overlooking the coast (Zapallar and Cachagua).

Located in Parque Natural Aguas de Ramón: a nice short loop trail with fantastic views of Santiago. This parque actually offers 3 loop options (see photo: we took the medium-sized blue path). We walked in the direction of South Face, looping back along the North Face trail. First kilometer has much of the elevation gain and levels off for the rest of the hike. Coming back down the North Face trail seemed a more gradual grade change. Saturday afternoon in September; already a lot of sun and very little shade along most of the route. Bring lots of water and hat! I’d rate as moderate.

A nice little hike, steep hill to get to the waterfall. We did it in the rain so the path was very muddy, messy and slippery but still a very beautiful waterfall to see.

Absolutely gorgeous! Definitely a must-do with all the amazing views all along! It’s a long trek but it’s not difficult as there’s no altitude. My favorite trail so far!

Incredible stroll. Ensure you get to the end to view the crater. Take in the history/mystery of fhe Island.

This is a beauty of a walk & intake of history. Aside from thd small incline to see the Moai, there are occasional steps that go further up to view some Moai still half carved into the mountain.

Awesome trail during spring time and first summer period, then unfortunately it gets pretty dry and hot. Regular rocks during last 1km to mountain peak (outdoor clothes are only important if you take the last quarter).

Tough but very worth the ascent. Check seasonal regulations to make sure the summit is open, and start early! You'll have to comply with timing regulations, as they usher everyone off the summit at 2pm (may change seasonally).

Although a short hike, the last 1 km to the top is more a scrambling up a mix of small, loose rock, gravel, and some larger rock. It obviously hadn't rained in quite a while, so it was quite dusty. As others have indicated the views of both the Andes and Santiago below are wonderful. Was treated to a number of Condors buzzing by. I say buzzing, as I heard one before I saw it and thought for a moment that it was drone. Scree on downhill posed challenges, but I didn't have the best shoes to deal with that. A variety of other small and large birds, too, including an eagle.
