Hike Cerro Manquehue "The Iconic mountain of Santiago" "Condors nest" in Mapudungun: Mapuche's local language.
The short distance to the city and the views that you can get in a relatively short time makes this hike a "must do" if you got a day in the city.
It is much better early on weekdays, on weekends usually, it's crowded.
The total climbing or elevation gain is 500 meters / 1500 feet in a 5k roundtrip. It is a pretty steep ascent but the good thing is that in half-day you hike to 1600 meters above sea level.

If you have just a half day, this is a great way to see Santiago from a panoramic vista. Can recommend for anyone fit and active with little hiking experience (even middle aged), with variations from easy graded trails to moderately challenging inclines with rocks/loose soil (recommend hiking boots if possible) (Merrell rated as "baja" (low) difficulty). Saw a variety of small birds and a Chilean Eagle during the hike to Manquehuito summit (smaller of the two overlooks). Take drinks/lunch/sunscreen/sunglasses, and be prepared to get dusty.
