Pay attention to the signs and stay on the trail. Also be aware of roots, rocks or branches which may make you trip. Watch out for a bike trail that crosses close to the start of the trail.
Further up the trail you will reach a fork, the left goes to a lookout, to Playa Muñoz and to the Emilio Frey Hut, take to the right and after crossing a bridge you will reach the waterfall.
