One of the less traveled trails of Los Glaciares NP, but with incredible views of the valley of the Fitz Roy River, along with the massifs of Cerro Torre, Fitz Roy and the Grande Glacier.
The trail begins at the trail fork located on the grounds of the Ceferino Fonzo Visitor Center, but instead of going left to the viewpoints of the Condors and the Eagles, we follow the signs and go to the right.
The trail is very well marked and most of it goes uphill through forests and pampas.
Approximately at km 4.5 (2.7 mi) the road forks: To the right it goes to the Loma del Pliegue Tumbado, and to the left the road continues for those who want to reach Lake Toro or for those who begin the Cerro Huemul Trek.
From this point the vegetation practically disappears and we continue the steep ascent. The last effort is a stretch that is made in zigzag and gradually begin to have in front of us the mountain range that will inspire us to move forward.
