From the nursery, one passes through an old vehicular footprint in a southerly direction. After 1.9 km passing through sectors of abundant Chilean Palms, and some viewpoints you reach the Casino sector, where it leaves a track to the right (west), if you follow it you will reach the Hail sector on the south side of the park , ride that is described (in reverse) in the P.N. La Campana, Ocoa. You must continue along the main road, the vegetation gradually decreases and the path slightly increases its slope. 4 km after the Casino sector, you will come to a fork. The main road will continue south to an old quartz mine, however the path will be taken to the left (east). This climbs steeply, but for a short time, after 10 minutes you will reach a viewpoint with a spectacular view of a rocky waterfall, surrounded by cacti in an environment of abundant Chilean palms. Although it is possible to return to the east side of the valley passing behind the waterfall following traces in diffuse parts, it will be advisable to return by the same route to avoid getting lost.
