NotesThe serrated pastel-coloured hills below the El Silar viewpoint at the head of the Quebrada Fierro Unu are the destination for this walk. A bicycle is helpful to cover some distance along the vehicle track, and route finding is fairly easy further up away from the vehicle tracks in Qubrada Fierro Unu. It's best to avoid getting close to goats higher up in the valley since they're usually guarded by dogs.
