“A beautiful trail with incredible views of Laguna and Cerro Torre.”— Russell Hobart
Soon, you'll notice that the Rio Fitz Roy is far below you in the gorge, and you come to your first overlook of the southern towers in the Fitz Roy range. Next you drop back to the river valley where you skirt the north side of a broad river plain while cutting in and out of the forest. After close to 5 miles, you come to undulating fields of boulders and glacial till. Soon you pop over the rim of a well-defined moraine with the powder blue waters of Laguna Torre, and the striking wall of ice that makes up Glaciar Torres. Continue along the rim to a great view of the glacier at the Mirador Maestri.
Once you've enjoyed the view, you'll return to the trailhead via the same route.
