Hiking in El Palmar National Park

El Palmar National Park offers five circuits to get to know it and the best way to connect to nature is hiking.


There is no better way to get in direct contact with nature than by hiking. In the case of El Palmar National Park, you can get to know from the city of Colón, Between Rivers. There are five circuits that allow visitors to know the diversity of flora and fauna that coexists in its 8213 hectares.

The most typical hiking path is the Mirador The Roundabout. It has an extension of a thousand meters and circular shape, i.e. that starts and ends in the same place. From the viewpoint on the banks of the stream Palmar is dimensioned the size of the park and the amount of palm trees that inhabit.

There is also the trail of the Mirador del Palmar, which deviates six kilometers from the main road, towards the Palmar stream. On this road, postcards of leafy groves and a mirror of brown water that winds along the coasts are imposed.

The El Mollar trail, meanwhile, extends for 1400 meters and is linked by a small path to the creek Los Loros. Here it is can address the problem of coexistence between native flora and exotic and invasive plants that were incorporated into the region.

On the other hand, the Yatay Trail is a of 600 meters that focuses its interest on the park's most outstanding species: the yatay palm (can live between 200 and 400 years and reach 12 meters high). This tour begins and ends at the trail of La Roundabout.

Finally, the Historical Ruins trail leads to walkers between the quartermaster and the historic site, which is neither more nor less than a set of contemporary ruins to the Jesuits of San Ignacio.

Those who are coming

From the park work is being done to inaugurate in the short term a sixth circuit, the Trail of the Jungle. It would be longer than the others, four and a half kilometers long and a route that would border the coast of the Uruguay River. What would require a better preparation for hiking.

In addition, it is planned in the medium term to recover the old Sendero of the Pasture, which has an extension of seven and a half kilometers and which was closed long ago because a lot of people were lost. Now we shuffle the idea of reopening it with mandatory enabled guides.

Useful Facts

Each tour is well delimited and features signage interpretative. The trails are enabled 365 days a year, from 7 to 20 in spring and summer and until 19 the rest of the year. The park opens up to the 23 and has catering, restaurant, camping and bicycle services and canoes. Tour guides can also be hired.

Hiking requires only water bottles and clothing light weight, sunscreen and hat to enjoy the journey healthily.
