La Reserva Nacional Laguna Parrillar

DSC04494We took an adventure to check out the start of the season at the Reserva Nacional Laguna Parrillar.  The park is located around 30 km South of Punta Arenas, heading another 20km or so into the mountains at the road junction at Agua Fresca.

About 20 meters from the entrance to the park is the trail head for ‘3 Morros’, an 8-hour hike round-trip through peat marshes (turba) and forests to view the ‘3 Hills.’

The inside of the park is popular among locals for the abundant fishing opportunities in the lake.  There are many camp sites situated throughout the park with beautifully constructed wooden picnic shelters and bonfire pits, a great way to spend a weekend with friends and family.

From the campground you can hike a 1.5 hour loop on a forested hiking trail to views of the lake and surrounding mountains.  This park is a great place to escape to for the day or for a weekend camping trip.
