“An awesome hike along the Piedras Blancas River to a lookout of the Piedras Blancas Glacier.”— Miguel Vieira
Continue through forests with occasional views until you reach the Mirador Piedras Blancas, at about 2.7 miles. At the Mirador lookout, you'll have a great view of the Piedras Blancas glacier and if you're lucky you'll see some ice calving off of it.
Continue through woods and grasslands to the Sendero al Fitz Roy/ Fitz Roy Trail, where you can choose to climb to Fitz Roy or continue to El Chaltén.
