thanx daytripper...the site is great..exactly what i needed for seeing what is in that area ..
raven, yeh, i think those hikes you mentioned are too short..dad wanted a hike more than a walk...something a little longer...
we actually went up to the first view point of diez vistas...we took route #7 by accident after crossing the floating bridge (have no idea how, as i followed all the signs)...so needless to say it was super steep for one hour, till we reached the junction of route#6 and by then, we were already near the first viewpoint..dad did very well..he kept up a good pace, his fear was just coming down again..but when we got to the junction, we realized we had missed the easy way up...so that is what we took down, which was easier on the knees..3hrs roundtrip, not bad for a 65 year old man who doesn't hike much..
thanx everyone for the info...
