    Quite nice for a walk / hike that close to the city centre, but walking right next to a highway about halfway through the hike kind of ruined it for me.

    Good trail with some very nice views along the way. There are enough ups and downs to get some exercise, but I’d still consider it a very easy trail. It connects to the Bruce Trail, so it’s possible to turn this into a longer hike. It’s nice even during bad weather since there are enough trees to protect you from the rain.

    Beautiful, well maintained trail with gorgeous views of the ocean and Cape Breton Highlands. It's the views that make this a 5 Star trail for me. Even the Loop trail is pretty easy and manageable even for hikers that are not in great shape; there are no steep or exposed sections. Let biggest draw of the Loop trail is that it's less crowded than the out-and-back trail.

    The trail makes for a nice walk if you're in the area already anyway. It's short and easy; there are lots of interpretative signs and the view once you're at the coast is beautiful. As others have mentioned steep stairs lead to the Balancing Rock viewing platform, so if you really hate climbing stairs you might want to reconsider.

    Not sure why this trail is labeled as 'hard', since there's only one rather short steep section; the rest is quite flat and easy. Lots of mushrooms and wildflowers in the forest.

    Well marked trail with enough ups and downs to get some exercise. Beautiful views during the first half. It's pretty crowded, though. Also, be prepared for a muddy, slippery trail.

    The scenery is beautiful, of course, especially during cherry blossom season or fall foliage, but it really is more of a stroll than anything else. The path is flat for the most part; the plus side is that it's almost barrier-free / wheelchair-friendly, the downside is that it can be VERY crowded.

    Silke Simons reviewed Torres del Paine “W” Circuit

    over 1 year ago

    Loved this hike; the scenery is absolutely stunning. I'd describe the hike as moderate rather than hard because there's not that much elevation gain. Also, the park's infrastructure is pretty good, so no need to carry your own tent - you can sleep in so called Refugios instead. I'd reccommend hiking from west to east and save the 'highlight' of the actual Torres for last. This is how i did it:
    Day 1 - leave early from Puerto Natales, take the ferry across Lake Pehoe and hike from Paine Grande to Refugio Grey. Check out Grey Glacier in the late afternoon.
    Day 2 - In the morning, hike up towards Campamento Paso to get a better view of the glacier, but then turn around an hike back to Refugio Pane Grande
    Day 3 - Hike to Refugio Los Cuernos with a detour up Valle des Frances; it's a steep hike but the view is worth it
    Day 4 - Hike to Refugio Chileno, drop your pack, and hike up to the base of the Torres
    Day 5 - hike down to Hosteria Las Torres; there you can either take a shuttle bus to Laguna Amarga or keep on hiking (approx. another 1 1/2 h). The hike to Laguna Amarga is not that special, but you might get the chance to see some Guanacos up close. From L.Amarga take the bus back to Puerto Natales.
