Hiking is the best reason to visit La Cumbrecita. Short trails are well marked and the tourist office can provide a crude but useful map of the area.

Guided Treks

For guided hikes further into the mountains, as well as horseback riding (AR$400 for four hours), trout fishing and mountain biking, contact Viviendo Montañas, which has an office on the main road in town. The company can also take you trekking to the top of Cerro Champaquí (2790m), the highest peak in the Sierras (a two-day trek).
