SENDERO PORTILLO DEL CÍJARA
We start north along the main track (about 10 km) until we reach the viewpoint of Portillo del Cíjara. The descent, about 600 m, requires some caution until we reach the old road N-502, of which almost no asphalt remains. We will take this road for about 7.5 km, until we reach a fork where we will choose to take the left uphill. Through this track, we will return to the Casa del Cíjara after traveling about 1,400 m.
