I've been there this weekend (the 20th of April) and enjoyed a lot! It was so quiet and clean, you could hear the birds singing and in the mean time having a nice view of Santiago. It's available for anyone, it has 3 trails, yellow, green and blue, depending on the difficulty.
The yellow trail is a pretty short one (around an hour), I haven't tried it
The green one they say it takes around 3-4 hours to make, but believe me, I was not in my best shape and did it in about 2h15min. It has 6.6 km.
The blue one is the longest, having 16 km round trip. The best part is that in the end you have a nice waterfall, so your effort will be rewarded with a spectacular view.
Be aware that if you take the blue trail you should start no later than 10 AM. It's very important to know that if you take this long walk.
There were no English speakers unfortunately but it wasn't the case. Everything is marked up pretty well. Be prepared for much dust and many cactuses :) The fee is pretty cheap, is 1500 chilian pesos, around 3 american dollars. Don't forget to bring water with you!

So close to Santiago, this park offers wonderful walks, good views of the city, snow-capped peaks and many resting spots. I appreciated that there is a system to register that ensures you leave your mobile number for safety as well as being offered an emergency number in return. I recommend it for a day out. At the foot of the walk is a great restaurant/coffee shop with real press-coffee and great nut tartlet.

The Parque is really just open land. There are well marked and patrolled trails. You can choose a short hike (25 minutes) to a picnic area, a four hour hike that includes a waterfall, or a longer 7 hour hike. We chose the four hour loop and finished it in two hours, so the seven hour hike might be less intimidating than it sounds. The hike into the valley makes you feel that you are far away in the mountains. But, look back and you can see the city. It is lovely. It is also very dusty. Be prepard to be dirty. There are excellent directions to get here by public transit on the web site. It took us under 30 minutes from the Metro Station Francisco Bilbao. A beautiful place.

In less than an hour from Baquedano (by metro, bus, then a short walk) you are at the entrance of the park, ready to start! There are tree proposed paths, the most interesting is the third one: a 7-8h round trip to Salto de Apoquindo, a waterfall with a stream where you can refill your bottle with the purest water in Santiago (if you choose this path, you will have to walk half of the other ones anyway, so you won't loose anything).

Important notice: be at 8am! you can enjoy more time at the top and avoid the return with the sun straight on the top of your head. Later than 10am they won't let you go for the long path. Prefer to visit on springtime.

This park located in La Reina, Santiago, Chile; is a big natural place with three different paths and two waterfalls, In this place you can spend your morning or even your day if you choose to do the longest one, also you have a picnic zone, bathrooms in the way and you can find a café at the entrance of the park also count with many different activities that you can do as canopy or plant in an orchard.
Is a place when you can go with your family or friends, also is recommended for kids, but if you want to do the ones that are longer, you should reconcider going with kids if you think they won't finish the trail.
Also you should use a lot of sunscreen and be prepare with good shoes and clothes.

I was surprised that at 2pm they didn't let me in anymore. The only open trail at this hour was a 500m long circuit. the entrance fee is 3000 CLP.
So I find a better option the nearby Parque Mahuida (500CLP) or Quebrada de Macul (free entrance) where you can enter and hike freely whenever you want until the sunset.

This park is perfect to enjoy a day of trekking, picnic and relax surrounded by nature. I recommend it for all types of people since it is not of great difficulty so beginners can go without much experience in trekking. At the end of the route you will find an amazing waterfall and also during the way you will enjoy the sound of the river. Another important thing is that It has organic bathrooms so it does not cause any impact on the environment

In search of hikes but without driving more than 20 km from downtown this park is a real option.
There are several trails and we decide to hike the longest to apiquindo falls.
It is a 17-18 km in and out with 850 m of denivelation.
Few shade and so a real challenge just out of town.
Perhaps more indication for the possible loop to come back at the peumos falls.
And some bebidas to buy at the return will be a plus
Really to recommand

Our family had a favorable visit to Parque Natural Aguas de Ramon. It was a worthwhile hike - not spectacular, but enjoyable. We were just about ready to leave when my 9 year-old talked the family into doing the zip line course. It is a privately operated item immediately adjacent to the trails of Parque Natural Aguas de Ramon. Cost was 8,000 CP (about $14 U.S.).

That was a real highlight for us. I did it with my daughters (12 & 9). At each turn two people from the zip line crew helped organize the operation. They made it a lot of fun. We're novice zip liners, so perhaps the more advanced folks would find it basic. But for us is was a fantastic and fun 75 (or so) minutes. Totally worthwhile.
