|Descend along the road to the bridge of
Herrerias where you find an information panel (10min) (1200 m) and a
path starting next to it. Take this path uphill.
By a wooden pole fork right (17min) (1240 m). The path carries you to
the water canal (26min) (1290 m), crosses a bridge (30min) (1295 m) and
immediately after that a stream before encountering another bridge
(32min) where it bends right and crosses one more bridge (38min) (1295 m).
After the bridge, you part company with the canal for a while. Later
on you have three choices. You can walk by the canal, on the paths that
run along the slope or on a narrow sand road some twenty meters higher
up. All three routes follow the gorge of the Alhama
If you follow the canal, it will ascend to the sand road (1h08min)
(1310 m). Turn left and soon you encounter signposts (1h12min) (1300 m).
Follow the sign "Canada Real de los Potros" straight
The road leads you along the gorge. When you find a wooden pole on
the left hand side of the road, take the path that starts following the
water canal again, this time on the other side of the
(1330 m) towards Lugros.
The path crosses a track (1h35min) (1310 m) and then a bridge
(1h39min) (1310 m). When you find a bridge on the right hand side of the
canal (1h43min) (1310 m), do not cross it, but stay by the canal. Ignore
also a track that branches off right (1h47min) (1305 m), and keep
following the canal.
The canal takes you to a sand road (2h10min) (1295 m). Turn left.
When the road forks (2h20min) (1265 m), go right. You come to the
village square (2h25min) (1245 m). Bend left and follow the Calle
Herreria back to the exit sign of the village (2h28min).
