“Depart Ruta 40 and head into the outback to Bodega Taquil.”— Frank Trotter
This trail departs from the road and heads up a broad wash to the west. Climbing gently up through a pass flanked by 10 and 11 thousand tall foothills of the Andes. Past the pass and down the hill there is a section on dirt road - but in this area "road" is a suggestive not definitive term - and dry creek bed.
The final mile or so rises abruptly over a small pass where the drop from the narrow road is several hundred feet. Cresting this section displays a green valley fed by a mountain stream with the final destination of Bodega Taquil sitting in the midst of vineyards.
