|Walk from the parking place (500 m) along the
C-8201 some 100 meters towards Puerto Cáliz to the sign for "Casa
Forestal" on the left side of the road. By the sign starts an
asphalt road that ascends to the Casa Forestal (2min). In front of the
house you find a track leading to the left. The track goes through a
gate to another gate (17min) (580 m). On the right side of this iron
gate you find a small green gate. Do not try to open it, but slide the
bars sideways and go through them.
Ascending gently in a cork tree forest the track goes through a gate
to a sign on your left for the "Laguna del Moral" (31min) (650 m). Take the path that bends left to the
lagoon (33min) (660 m). The
lagoon is fenced, but you find a gate to the shore.
Return to the track and continue uphill. When the track forks (45min)
(675 m), go left. Ignore a track that branches off right (1h25min) (860 m) and keep straight ahead. At the highest point of the track (1h27min)
(880 m), you have a nice view over the Sauceda and of the mountain
Further down a path with a sign for "Pico del Aljibe" forks
off right (1h52min) (795 m), but you cannot take this path to the top of
Aljibe without a permit and getting it is complicated. Descending along
the track you enjoy views over the rolling
valleys. The track comes to
the parking place of Sauceda (3h20min).
