This route is only for the summer time. Even in the dryest season,
the paths are flooded with water.
Continue from the church square (1470 m) downhill. Further down you
see a sign "Camino del Horcajo, Camino del Molino Altero".
Bend left staying at the same level. The lane ends into a beginning of a
path (3min) (1465 m).
The path carries you through pastures
to a track (14min) (1465 m). Turn right. When
you come to a river, do not cross the bridge, but bend left uphill on a
path. Higher up you meet another path (22min) (1480 m). Turn right.
The partly cobbled path ascends gently parting company with the
river. Later on, the path meets the river every now and then. You
encounter pretty paddocks
with cows. After crossing the first bridge (1h25min) (1615 m),
becomes even more watery.
By the second bridge
(2h13min) (1770 m) continue on the path straight ahead without crossing
the bridge. A lot of water
runs along the path. Higher up you can see the rushing river
After crossing the next bridge (2h39min) (1834
m) the path climbs to a small hillock and descends then to another bridge
(2h46min) (1865 m). On the other side of this bridge the path continues steep
uphill opening views to the gorge.
You pass the ruins of a building and cross
one more bridge
by the confluence of the rivers Puerto de Jeres and Juntillas (3h16min)
(1975 m). This is a good point to turn back.
If you decide to continue forward, the path ascends to a house
(3h40min) (2170 m). From here make for a group of trees. Above this
group you find a gate. Walk through the pasture where bulls are grazing
until you find a steep path descending to the river (3h55min) (2200 m).
The river with its rushing waters looks charming, but the path leading
to it is narrow and not easy to walk. At the waterfront you find another
gate (4h15min) (2150 m). If you want to explore the water canal on the
opposite side of the river, take the narrow path uphill. The canal that
runs through a bright green grass is beautiful, but do not start
following the canal onwards to the left (4h24min) (2200 m). Although you will find a
clear path in some twenty minutes, you will lose it later on. Even if
you know in which direction is Treveléz, you end up in troubles. Deep
gorges split the slopes. Going round them means climbing uphill and then
downhill. This way the route back to Treveléz is much longer than you
