How to get there: Driving on the A-92 take the exit number 250 (Viznar). Continue less than 1 km towards Viznar and turn left towards Alfacar. You reach a roundabout about 50 meters after the junction. Continue straight ahead for less than 1 km and turn left uphill. After some 200 meters, by a fountain, turn right to Avenida Murcia, which turns into GR-3101 somewhat later. Follow the signs for  "Centro de Visitantes Puerto Lobo" which guide you to the left after 1.2 km and to the right less than 500 meters thereafter. You reach a parking place less than 50 meters before the tourist center. (Roadmap)

Distance: 55min/3.5km

Return along the asphalt road some 50 meters till you find an information panel and a path that forks off  right by the panel. Take this path marked with a white arrow (1min) (1260 m). Ibices are quite tame in this nature park. The path leads through a coniferous forest to a track (20 min) (1250 m). Turn right and fork off  right on a path with a white arrow (22min) (1260 m). You have a nice view over the valley.

The path takes you to the dugouts called Trincheras del Maúllo which played an important role in the defense of Granda during the Spanish cilvil war (35min) (1330 m). These dugouts form a labyrinth with lookout spots to Huétor Santillán and other towns of the valley. 

Return from the dugouts to the track (45min) and continue along it until a path with an arrow goes right (48min) (1260 m). The path ascends to a sand road (49min). Turn left towards the tourist center and return to the parking place (55min).
