The scenery is spectacular reminding one of New Zealand and the Smokey mountains. Go to Petrohue falls. Enjoy the lake vistas.

I only wish we would have spent more time in this amazing park. Fantastic hiking and it is such an experience hiking so close to the volcano. I highly recommend going up to the ski resort and taking the lift and hiking around that area...More
