Totally loved it. Amazing landscapes in summer! Just make sure you go with enough time. In the middle if the way you will find a lake perfect for a pic nic while you rest for the last part right before getting to the highest point.

its abeautiful spot, and an easy hike to the top. There are arazucaria trees along the wasy, and at the lakes on the way up.You can stay on the way up at La Loma, a camping site, run by its owner, very special too.

We did this hike through our hostel and it was amazing! We were lucky enough to have great weather and a clear afternoon. From the top you could see three volcanoes, two lakes and across to Argentina. Probably the best view we've seen. It can be hard work so ensure plenty of time and be well prepared.

What a great hike - one of the toughest ones I've ever done (the gradient of the climb to the nature reserve is almost as steep as some of the hikes in our drakensberg mountains) - the gradient was hectic, but what made it so tough was the length of the climb... but once you were in the nature reserve...

It's a nice walk until the "Mirador", with a path well marked. It can be done in 3 or 4 hours, and it's not much trouble for whom is used to do this kind of activity.

Its a really breathtaking walk..in two ways: First there is a 2h steep climb to get to the first plateau...you really must be in shape!;-) Go there early so its not too hot! After 3.5h you will be awarded with great scenery!! You get to see all the volcanoes!

This seems to be a new reserve. We hiked up based on a Lonely Planet information. Km to the lake and panorama view point must be seriously off, when we were long past the distance we thought it would take is, we turned around and went home. A good decision, since according to GPS we were far away from the... More

The main trail in this private reserve is both long and steep, and features various flora found on different heights around Pucon. However, there was no one at the reserve's entrance, and the refugios are all abandoned, so one would do well to research before going (and print your own map)

A very hidden access to start, followed by the steepest and dustiest hill we have faced during our week hikes in pucon takes us to this less beaten park of the area. The view on top is very pretty, the lakes are not as nice as huerquehue though.
