Hacienda Cauquenes Trail

Sendero Cauquenes

This trail, which is open to the public, is located on land belonging to Chile’s national mining company, Codelco.  Attractions include a variety of noteworthy flora and fauna like native arid forest, geologic formations, the Culpeo fox, chinchilla, and birds unique to the region.  Visitors also enjoy the Los Leones Stream.  Another point of interest is the washing channels used by Codelco to contain mining residues and minimize environmental impact.  This trail can only be accessed by private vehicle.
