This short easy trail is located at the end of a dirt road in Tierra del Fuego National Park. The wide trail follows the Rio Pipo upstream to a viewing platform overlooking a narrow whitewater section of the river called "The Cascade."

From the parking area, walk through a make-shift barrier with the river on your right hand side.  The start of the trail looks as part of a dirt road, this is the correct way.  There are some great photo opportunities with the mountains towering over the river in the background.  Near the end, the trail enters a forest and soon there is a viewing deck for the cascade.  Not that impressive but an easy out and back.  The highlight is the scenic river and background of the mountains.
