How to get there: Driving on the A-326 that starts from Pozo Alcón and leads to Huéscar, turn on a narrow asphalt road between the kilometre posts K1 and K2 following the sign for "Camino de Servicio del Canal del Sur". After 600 metres, cross the canal on your left to a sand road. Continue 1.4 km to a fork. (Roadmap)

Distance: 1h40min/6km

From the fork (775 m) continue on foot to the left towards the gorge of Guadalentin. The road descends through olive groves to the bridge of Tia Canaca (5min) (745 m). After crossing it, fork left. Keep on the track that follows the Guadalentin river, and do not go right uphill (11min) (710 m).

When you encounter a bridge over the river, cross it (18min) (745 m) and follow the path running on the left side of the river. You find bridges over the river every few minutes. Some of them are made of logs. Thanks to the bridges you can choose on which side you prefer to walk.

The path leads through a shady woods and turns into a track (33min) (745 m) that keeps following the river. After passing landing-stages of fishermen (40min) (750 m) you meet signposts (41min) (750 m). Follow the sign for "Molino de Peralta" straight ahead. Somewhat later the sign guides you to the right over a bridge (45min) (755 m). Immediately after crossing the bridge, take the stone steps upwards. You encounter the ruins of the mill and two bridges. Cross the narrower bridge and climb under giant fig trees along a path with flowing water. The path ends by sheer rock walls and a small water fall to a shady place where you find more ruins (50min) (760 m). Return along the same way back to the beginning of the route (1h40min).
