The route begins in the town of Los Maitenes and proceeds through the Estero Aucayes, surrounded by vegetation and mountain scenery. It is a pleasant hike to enjoy a day in nature and enjoy the water. Although the path is not difficult, some parts are at risk of mountain collapse or are under construction and it is not possible to advance for safety reasons.Show more
