    The first part of the rise in auto is a rather complicated route. Gravel without maintenance. At first and slowly becomes the base to begin the hike. The first stop is a part very cute with sculptures of wood and then to the shelter so. The views are extraordinary. It is advisable to do so at the end of the trip if you are not trained!
