Ferrier Mountain is located in the west part of the park, next to the Conaf Office in the Grey sector, not too far from Hotel Grey.
Above all, the return hike is about 7hrs and offers panoramic views over Grey Lake, Pingo Glacier, the Torres del Paine Massif and the Cuernos del Paine. However, the trek involves some difficult uphill stretches. For example, the trail almost immediately heads upwards from the start and continues up at a steep, and zig-zagging 60 ° elevation, quickly reaching an altitude of 700 meters above sea level.
Before reaching the often-windy viewpoint, you will cross a river, and enter a Lenga forest.
Shortly after this point you will reach Ferrier viewpoint (mirador), and from here you will have spectacular panoramic views of Glacier Grey and the icebergs floating on the lake, the Paine Mountain Range, Paine River, Toro Lake and Pingo Glacier.
