Parque Nacional Los Alerces - Hiking Trevelin - Argentina

Parque Nacional Los Alerces was established in 1937, primarily to protect endangered Alerce trees, which are some of the oldest plant species on Earth but were heavily logged in the 19th century. Alerces grow only 1 mm every year, but many of these trees are more than 55 m tall and have a diameter of more than 4 m. The 263,000 hectare park also includes nine different lakes, which are less visited than many of the lakes in the national parks further to the North. A ranger station (guardaparque), restaurant and campgrounds can be found at the miniscule settlement Villa Futalaufquen, located within the park.
