This walk can be done from the coast up through an internal street, past the FM radio and about 200 meters you will reach the Pampa de los Alamos, where you can park.

The waterfall, 25 meters high, is surrounded by basalt walls that are traces of glaciers that dominated the area. The return can be done by another descending trail that will allow you to complete a circuit back to the parking place.

From here take a right on a well demarcated path and after about 1500 meters of trail that winds through the dense forest of coihues, cypress and ñires you reach the viewpoint of Blanco Creek. There is obtained a beautiful view of the waterfall looming between vegetation of reeds and aljhabas. From this point begins the descent (and return).

Leaving the village towards the route of the Seven Lakes, 8 km you reach the bridge over the Cataratas creek. Before crossing and on the left, you can park.

From there, through the forest, part of the path that runs parallel to the stream continuously and has a total length of approximately 1500 meters. His first 800 meters are easily accessible, but the final section offers some difficulties especially in the slope.

The end of the trail leads to the bottom of the fall of 20 meters and significant flow at any time of year. The noise is deafening and spectacular around the site thanks to the generosity of the warm, moist environment leads to a significant concentration of plants and wildflowers.

Return by the same path. You have to take care of the children, and while there is little sunlight entering the extent of the forest, the best moments to shoot photographies are the hours after noon.
