Tread carefully across a river of solidified lava at Escorial. Created by a volcano eruption around 400 years ago, the lava trail spans 7.5 km (4.7 mi), flowing into Lake Epulafquen. Walk along the smooth path that has been laid on top of the lava flow, and look out at the expanse of once molten rock on either side of you. Wear appropriate footwear, such as hiking boots, if you do decide to step off the path to walk across the lava; the rough terrain could easily cause you to roll an ankle if you're not careful.

  • Don't miss this, awsome nature fenomena involving magma, water and life. This nature so pure and wild.

  • Handsome. Starting point to other walks/sectors; like the house of the park ranger and the Senda El Contra, which surrounds the bay.
  • Amazing place and the road is beautiful (lakes and lots of vegetation). The route is better taking it from Junín. Although there are wells and loose stones, you can get there by car going at 20 km / h.
