This is a short trek that doesn't disappoint, the falls are very beautiful specially during spring when the snow melts and water rushes through it. Not demanding at all and very entertaining for little kids as you walk to a forest of native vegetation. There...More

Nice but not worth the 2 km walk on the gravel road but if you go up to the Mirador then the trip is worth it

It is a nice, not very tiring walk through the living forest with streams coming down and the falls are human size and wonderful to see.

Get to it by bus, then a 3 km walk by the Gutiérrez lakeside. You have a 15 minute walk through a forest to get to it and it is all quite worth it.

Easy and short hike. Nice small waterfall. After the waterfall we hiked about 35 mins up to the Mirador del Lago Gutierrez and enjoyed the view.

This beautiful waterfall is located near by Lake Gutierrez. It's an easy and short 30' walk from the parking to the fall. Surrounded by nature an by an spectacular view and lake. Definitely worth it!

If you have more than a couple of days in Bariloche then I recommend this walk. Like other reviewers, we took the number 50 bus to Villa Los Coihues and walked the 1-2 km around the lake to the park office, everything is well signposted...More
