How to get there: Driving on the A-326 from Castril towards Huéscar turn left after some 4 km, between the kilometre posts 28 and 29, on a narrow asphalt road signposted to "Parque Natural Sierra de Castril" and "Nacimiento del Río". When the road forks some 400 metres further, keep right. It turns into a sand road after 1.3 km from the junction. Drive on this road altogether 8.3 km until you see an information panel on the walking route "Cerrada de la Magdalena" on your left. (Roadmap)

Distance: 45min/3km

By the panel (1025 m) starts a track that leads gently uphill following first the Castril river. A wooden pole guides you left on a path (6min) (1050 m). You have a nice view to the river valley and rock walls rising behind it. The path leads to a lookout spot (13min) (1080 m). Morra Pino Seco and Picón de la Tía Ramona are the peaks closest to you. 

You cross a couple of gorges and continue through a beuatiful pine forest towards the reddish rocks. Cerrada de la Magdalena (23min) (1095 m) is an impasse closed by sheer walls. The waterfall forms a large bond where the path ends and continues down along the gorge. Return the same way back to the beginning of the route (45min).
