    The wind was howling but that made it an experience.

    Take the time to do this. The view IS Torres del Paine!

    Awesome.
    Started in El Pilar (recommend, see review) but Alltrails Marked this complete.

    This is a better trek than the out and back. The incline is less and one does not see the same thing (not that one gets bored with the views).

    I got a bus ticket for $10 at the El Chaltén station the night before. I was picked up at my Hotel. 30 min ride.

    Bring proper attire, Once I ran out I filled my water bottle from the running streams. One can taste the turquoise!

    Pouring Rain.
    That means have the correct clothing (unlike some I passed).
    Very windy, cold, a perfect hiking day.
    I was surprised how many people were out there.

    Dedicated trail workers / volunteers tending the trail.

    Muchas gracias!

    Do the future a favor and stay on the marked trail. Do not digress to the side trails. Especially on the El Chalten side.

    I recommend taking the red trail. It contains the lowest and closest views (as seen on my recording, not sure why it lapses). One gets a great perspective.

    This is the trail to take. The western section ridge runs and offers great views. This trail connects to many other trails and is a great stating place for a loop hike to start.

    This is a park with something for everyone. A beach for swimming, boat rental, organized bird watching, hiking for miles, even on the Appalachian trail, and a winter park to boot. Get there and do something!

    Awesome side trail. Great detour for a lunch break.

    One of my favorite park and camp locations. Hand pump for water, fire rings, some isolated sites. Clean brook for wading in. Blue trail is a great day hike. I recommend one start where the trail bisects the park road near the entrance south side. Take the trail counterclockwise. This will allow for warm up and forest enjoyment. Cross across the road again at the north part of the park. Then up, up, up to the peak of Cobble Mt. Enjoy the view and head down again to where you started.

    One of my first ventures into the outdoors, history, and hiking. There is a Youth Group camping area.
    There are reenactments throughout the year. There is a museum with great info. There is a picnic area on a lake across the street from the historic area.

    One of my favorite places. Awesome view from the top. There is a section of the green trail, between the blue and orange that requires some serious rock negotiation. It's about a 15 foot vertical section.

    If your at the right place at the right time you can treat yourself to the Huckleberries!

    One of my very first hike. The views along the Talcott Mt ridge are great. The Heublein tower is often open which one can climb to the top. Panoramic views await where Hartford seems to spring out of the earth.

    Great for plot camping. Water access; sometimes closed due to fertilizer run off from upstream.
    Good hiking with a great view of the Housatonic river.

    1500 ft vertical in 1.5 miles gets your heart pounding. Enjoy the view from Beacon Mt.
    A historical railroad once climbed this mountain to a casino to the top.

    To take the hike over the top head to the top. Look back from the ridge and you will see the fire tower to the east. It's worth the hike. Climb to the top! There one can see up the river to Kingston, and down to the NYC skyline. Catskill's are also visible.
