Description

This trail begins with a climb up grassy slopes with views of the Paine Massif and the Patagonian steppe. As you enter the Rio Ascencio valley, the mountain sides get steeper and you enter a dense, ancient forest. Occasional breaks in the trees reveal incredible views of the valley.

Descend to cross the Rio Ascencio on a bridge and pass the Refugio Chileno. Continue through dense forest along the river valley until you reach the junction that takes you to the Base Las Torres Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Lenga beech and Antarctic beech trees in the forests.
