  • Site with several trails between eucalyptus and pinus eliottis, haven't seen native forest. The map of the site that offer at reception, is not correct, which may cause some confusion during the walk, so beware! The walk is by Sandy road, with some strong rises. I liked the cleanliness and to be a safe place. In an afternoon walking by several trails, but not for the entire Park.
