One can drive up to a parking platform or hike to the platform from town. Then in about a steep 20 minute walk, the sculpture park reveals itself. It is an amazing and surprising find. The artists are inventive in taking advantage of the wood. Then one can hike up to the refugio for a nice snack and great view... More

We had a rental car and drove up to the platform to start the hike. I'd highly recommend driving or catching a ride up that far...the walk prior up the gravel road doesn't look very exciting. We passed a couple of taxis on the way up so that's an option also. Starting the hike from the platform leaves about 1km... More

I hitchhiked to the trailhead with some other hostelers, and the short hike up to the bosque tallado is definitely worth it. The carved trees are beautiful and intriguing, and the view is unbelievable. Keep hiking up to the refugio, and to the mountaintop if you have the time, the scenery is beyond gorgeous.

This was a real gem of a find. We set off to climb the Cerro and found this on our way up. We didn't expect it, but loved the sculptures, reflecting traditional art and themes, stuck in such a picturesque setting. It makes you feel great that, amid a world beset with problems, people can find time to create such... More

If you like hiking you can reach in during the day and back, or eventually also stop to sleep in the refugio near by.

We headed to Bolson from Bariloche looking for a hippie vibe and veggie-friendly food. Bolson did not deliver on either of those fronts but this sculpture garden made it almost worth the trip. Great art in a great setting. Definitely a must if you are in Bolson. Note: The hike up was tough going in parts, but it is mercifully... More

It's on the way to Piltriquitrón it's an hour walk or 45 min to get there from the parkinglot. It's amazing to see what they've done with the dead trees after 1980's fire. Never seen anything like it. It's not that big, but it's worth seen. Be aware, you'll get charget to be able to visit the place. It's about... More

There was a short, steep hour long up hill hike. Great views! A great spot for a picnic on top. Don't try to drive up with a rental car unless you have 4 wheel drive. We saw many cars stuck on the side of the dirt road.

I really enjoyed walking around the Bosque Tallado, there are some pretty amazing sculptures and fantastic views of El Bolson. If you have the time, I would definitely recommend walking the extra 3 hours or so up to the Refugio and then to the summit of the Piltriquitron. Breathtaking views of the whole cordillera for a relatively short hike (there... More

El Bosque tallado offers some beautiful views for 40 pesos and displays artworks by people from all over South America. Afterwards if you are ambitious you should hike up to the Refugio and go try climb to the summit! I did it in a pair of barefoot runners and everyone thought I was crazy. Lots and lots of loose gravel... More
