  • Steep trail and loose rocky terrain. Take good hiking shoes.
  • Long hike, calculate the daylight hours.


This is a circular trail. On its way up goes along the valley between the Bella Vista and López peaks in the forest, then turns left and heads up to the Goye peak to finally descend by a steep rocky trail down to the starting point.

The trailhead is close to Colonia Suiza and the first 2 km. share the same trail that goes up to Manfredo Segre Hut (Laguna Negra). Look out for the sign marking the detour left towards the Goye peak.

Watch out for the signs and markings as the trail is not very well marked and at times there aren’t many red markings and lots of trails crossings which can be misleading.

After roughly 2:30 hs. you reach a marshy area with logs laid down to aid crossing this section. The trail continues to climb up to the first summit of the Goye peak.

Continue along the ridge to the second summit, a little lower and after which the real descent begins. This is the most technical part as there is a lot of loose scree and very steep so you need a lot of mountain experience. The trails continues down until you get onto the wide dirt road for the last meters before the gravel road that takes you back to Colonia Suiza.

To improve the trekking experience, it is recommended to contact a Mountain Guide authorized by the AAGM (Argentine Association of Mountain Guides)
