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 to the sculptures and another 1/2 km to the Refugio. It's moderately steep but not bad. Great views from the Rufugio so I'd highly recommend going on up after enjoying the sculptures. The sculptures are cool and if you continue on up to the Refugio and the mirador it make for a great day trip!

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 beauty and imagine such a place to put it into.

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 short, so hang in there!
