SENDERO LAS MESAS
This route runs along the old road from Helechosa de los Montes to Castilblanco, going up the valley of the Nine Voices stream, in a wooded area. We will find first the pond of the Robledillos, and then a dam on the stream. On the way up we went from the Public Utility Mount No. 27 "Los Robledillos" to the Public Utility Mount No. 9 "Los Chopos". Upon entering the central track at the Crossing of the Tables, we turn left, coinciding with the Guadiana Natural Way, next to a pond on the bed of the Bad Steps River. After traveling about 1,500 m from the central track, we take a path to the left that crosses the stream, then return to the old road from Helechosa to Castilblanco, which will mean the return to the Robledillos.
