From the ranger booth, walk south on an old vehicle track. After 1,9 km passing through areas with plenty Chilean Palms (Jubaea chilensis) and some lookout points, you will reach the Casino sector, where you will see a track to the right (west), if you follow it, it will take you to Granizo sector at the south side of the park, trek that is described starting from the opposite side on Travesía P.N. La Campana. Continue on the main path, the vegetation will decrease little y little and the path will increase its slope. 4 km after the Casino sector, you will reach a fork. The main road continues south to an old quartz mine, but take the path the left (east). It ascends significantly, but not for long, after 10 minutes you will reach a lookout with a spectacular view of a rocky waterfall, surrounded by cacti and plenty of Chilean Palms. Even though it is possible to return on the east side of the valley going behind the waterfall and following a diffuse path, we recommend returning on the same path to avoid getting lost.

Estimated Time

At a normal pace, this trek should take about 3,5 hours. If you mountain bike, 2 hours should be enough, but there are many paths that you can explore.


An entrance fee of 1.500 CLP is charged.
