The walk begins across the road from the Hotel through La Paca and up to the Camino Forestal which is a pine forest. There is a steady continuous climb of 170m up through the forest until reaching a flat path. This path continues to the last moderately difficult climb to the Forest Guard's house. There are stops for breaks to take in the views of the Guadalhorce Valley. The lunch break is at the Forest Guard's house and then there is a return back down in another circular route through the forest. Most of the walk is in the shade and finishes back at the El Mirador Hotel for refreshments.
