This route goes through an old Roman road that connected Algeciras Bay with Cádiz Bay, and includes a stop in a viewpoint where we’ll enjoy a splendid panorama of Sierra de Ojén and Sierra de la Luna.
We’ll be witness to the enormous contrast between a pasture area and the deep cork forests, or the spectacular gall oak forests in wetter lands. A close inspection of said gall oaks will reveal the majestic poise of the big arms of the trees that are used for coaling by the locals.
However, you’re still in for a surprise when, on select days, you can watch the massive swarms of kites and storks resting on these valleys on their way to Africa after several days of great winds.

This gorgeous trail goes through the mountain that gives it its very name, parallel to the ravine that gives it a fresh touch and the environment that gives it a spectacular natural soundtrack.
The route will allow us to meet the featured vegetal formation of this park, the canutos. Those are a special and unique kind of gallery forests only seen in our lands, and these ones ares filled with rhododendron (known locally as “ojaranzo”) and little hazels. It also allows us to feast our eyes in the exhuberant gall oaks, alders, and ferns that will freshen up our trip on this easy, circular, and horizontal route, full of surprises for those looking for a natural adventure.
And when we’re done, a lunch in Venta “El Frenazo” will be waiting for us.
