Its not the most interesting of trails and poorly transited, but its a leisurely hike along the gentle slopes of the Madre and Hija lakes. Both ends of the hike have nice views of the peaks but the middle portion is rather unremarkable. It basically connects the Laguna de los Tres and Laguna Torre trails close to the Poincenot and De Agostini campsites.
The trail is 7 km long and mostly rather flat and narrow but that doesn't mean you need gaiters for example. The last km near Torre trail does go downhill through forest but nothing challenging. There are some stony beaches as the heads of the lakes where to rest and eat lunch.
Beware that there is no fast running glacial streams from which to refill your water so bring enough for the 7km. Of course you could always take water from the lake but wouldn't do so without filters/tablets.
There's not much traffic on this trail and in the time it took to hike we only met 5 other people total.
