Whatever happened to the Chilean Trail?

The Sendero de Chile (“Chilean Trail”) project was launched in the year 2000 by the Chilean government to celebrate the country’s 2010 bicentenary of independence from Spain. …

 It was announced that the national trail network … signposted paths through the length of Chile covering approximately 8,500 km of trails. …

The ambitious plans suffered substantial setbacks and no continuous longer trail was created. 


As of 2021 there are still dreams of continuing the project.

In 2020 the Foundation was looking at connecting the Aconcagua and Maipo rivers, through the cordillera de la Costa, between La Calera and Melipilla, passing through another 13 communes on their way, of approximately 170 km of length.
