Y-620 / Camino a Reserva Laguna Parrillar

Y-620  (also called Camino a Reserva Laguna Parrillar) is a short mountain tarred road, with a length of 21,7km, located southern Chile's Magallanes and Antártica Chilena Region. The road starts in the junction with N-9, and finishes in the Laguna Parrillar National Reserve.

It’s a real challenging road and a true test of your vehicle and your stamina because the road abounds in twists and turns. The reserve is named after its principal lake, Laguna Parrillar, which has a surface area of 970 km. hectareas, and is surrounded by vegetation. This trail has seven stopping points where there are clearings suitable for picnics, and for trout fishing in the months of October to March each year. The Laguna Parrillar National Reserve was created in 1977. It has 18.414 hectares of area, and it was created to protect the hydrographic basin of Laguna Parrillar, the main water reserve of Punta Arenas.
This is a maintained road where a high clearance 2WD vehicle is able to travel safely at low speeds on long dry straight-of-ways, without losing control due to wash boarding, ruts, or dips.  With areas between the 300 and 650 meters above sea level, the biggest is called Laguna Parrillar with 970 hectares, which is completely frozen when winter comes because of its altitude and the low temperatures of the season. The ice, especially on its borders, sometimes is about 11 inches thick. In other sectors the snow reaches the 2 feet tall, all the rivers and lagoons in the reserve turn into ice.
