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 may be 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.

First to Review

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.
