The starting point for several well-marked hiking trails. On the left-hand side of the road is the easy 1.6km trail to two small, stunning waterfalls, the Salto de Las Chilcas (where the underground Río Laja emerges) and the Salto del Torbellino. On the right is Sendero Los Coigües, a 1.7km hike to a spot with fabulous views of Volcán Antuco.

A 31km section of the long-distance trail known as Sendero de Chile passes along the right-hand side of the road and goes to Laguna del Laja.
