The walk starts at the road and after a few metres we turn right down a path which is used for access to different farms. We carry on this path for 2 KM until we reach the Alaminos or Las Pasadas river and continue for a further 200 m, and then we take path off to the left which is the start of the climb up the mountain. There is a steady climb up the Loma Canalizo until we reach the Puerto Canalizo where the are views of the Mijas coastline. Continuing along the slope there are further views of the Sierra de Mijas until we find the path marked “ PR-A-338 Albuqueria-Barranco Blanco " which then takes you back to the starting point as this is a loop country walk.
