Cerro Uritorco, Capilla del Monte

(850+ reviews on the web)
Volcano
Climb to the highest peak of the Sierras Chicas in a rewarding trek at Cerro Uritorco. Rated as a medium-difficulty hike, the official trail takes most of the day to complete. Once at the top, walk around to reap the fullest reward, as you'll get a sweeping view of the mountains and even find some other remote spots for pictures. The mountain has been a hotspot for UFO sightings and other paranormal incidents--hence the alien statues at the bottom of the park.
