  • The ascent to the Lopez hill begins on Provincial Route 77, at the height of the Lopez stream. The ascent to the refuge that bears the same name is of an average difficulty, with steep sectors. It is generally estimated a climb time of 3 hs (although I did it in 1 h 50 min). The trail is very nice and the views you have in the shelter are amazing!

  • I went up the hill as a family. The experience and views are great. The ascent can be tiring in the first two-thirds of the route and above is always cooler. In our case, we reached the shelter. From there the views are spectacular. At the shelter, the space is shared, so I recommend bringing your own food and, if the place is very visited, prepare to share the table.
