    A place for things well done. The enclosure, very well maintained, excellent facilities. A nice and cold River to spend the day. There is enough space for everyone. Very well guarded, save parks very concerned. There are trails and treks for all tastes. If you want to go out to nature, without get away from Santiago, this is the ideal place.

    With the expectation that visitariamos the reserve for a simple tour, short and that we could have lunch in pirque then we committed in carrying out one of the trekking which is offered at the entrance, obviously prepared with good clothes, food and water, always ready. Decided to performed the Aliwen path of 2 kms and 120 minutes we find with surprise that there was an alternative path that did not appear in the given map and is called path broken oxen. Without much hesitation, we ventured in the mission starting at 10:40 am. While visited we saw had enumerated signs posts that at the beginning we thought that marked 100 meters but pointed to the 200 meters of travel, all good until you reach the station 10 where it appeared that llevamanos 2 kms and we were missing up to 10 kms, there the way was not difficult, climbs quiet, beautiful landscapes, accompanied by calm, a little cold and the sun hovering suddenly by this southern slope cargandonos of energy. Removing accounts would have to lunch on the way the goal get to 13:00 hrs to post number 30 that would mark the 6 km of travel, try to clear it but to deepen through the forest, at the appearance of frost and mud, and already a little concerned at the time and that one of our friends was his first Trek, we decided to make a stop for lunch in post 26 on a hill where the Sun embraced us with kindness and filled us with force to follow, we abode, we ate and we continue climbing. Luckily that a group behind our was and later two young men they shared us additional of this route that map to us not we had delivered. Throughout the tour and 60 notices was indicated on this map. And we continue climbing, and climbing up to the snow, as delivered to finish the tour, sometimes separating us us regrouping, waiting and following, had to hurry, we wanted which should be secreted in the Sun, luckily we already were in the north slope and the Sun was not continuous, but the last 6 seasons were by the South side so we had to hurry and arrive before 17:00 hrs. Follow these roads with snow, with many species of vegetation, birds and one other camouflaged animal among the bushes, a marvel, a quiet, a gift that must be shared. Almost 6 hours we delay returning to the parking lot, tired, well tired, but could be, even for our beginner friend that we had to help him with the backpack and improvise a support cane, legs already not gave him more in the fall. But it could, we arrived with a great satisfaction and a huge experience, really one of the best Trek I made.

    Near Santiago, with very good access. Different alternatives of trekking for all ages, all very well signposted. It is advisable to go during winter time. The landscape in background with snow is beautiful.
