Route Description

Initially ascend from the upper village following signs to “Siete Lagunas” before leaving this track to the right and following a well trodden path traversing above the 1000m level, crossing several river valleys (barrancos). After crossing the Rio Culo Perro descending from Siete Lagunas the route descends through farmland to join the Rio Trevelez and hence back to the town alongside the river.
