  • The Laguna 69 was one of the hardest trails I've ever realized. And I realized many trails. The altitude requires much of Walker and there are very long and steep climbs 02 you got me thinking even to give up, but fortunately I was persistent. The trail follows a river for a while, then goes through 02 great waterfalls. Among the main 02 climbs, the trail passes laterally by a small lagoon and finally you get to the famous and beautiful Laguna 69. An incredible Blue with a waterfall of thaw. Some brave take their clothes and swim. The trail requires a lot and then I need to go back. So it is not possible to spend that much time resting and enjoying the laguna. Go back down the knees and ankles, and get to the vehicles is suffered mainly because Park at the high end and when we think the trail ended, there's still the final ascent. Small, but pulled ahead to fatigue the whole trail. Even though it's difficult, I recommend too.
