  • Great place to disconnect from the craziness of the city. You can picnic up there, have great hikes and enjoy nature!  more »
  • Good place for climbing hills. Bad thing? Hordes of ill-educated making Roast with the radio blaring and motorcycle running hills

  • It is a nice walk, but the entrance is expensive ($4,000 per person) without any comfort... the most important thing is that there is no water or even for washing hands or utensils pora eat. The river isn't suitable for bath given how strong running water, this is thinking in children.

  • There for a birthday, had a great BBQ and the small river was avwelcome cool off point and great fun for the kids :-)
  • Gorgeous place for a hike or a picnic, to be surrounded by beautiful nature, with the sound of the river. And everything just a step from Santiago.
  • Beautiful placd by the river but need to improve access
  • Great for a weekend gettaway, has picnic sites and bbq grills on the river side, hiking routes and a very intriguing abandoned castle-house, not to be missed.
  • Very nice place. You can do a lot of things there even if the entrance is pretty expensive : trek, swimming in natural pool or in the river, BBQ...
