This walk starts with a slight uphill gradient to the Graja pass. Arriving at the Graja pass there is a large Aleppo pine tree – ‘Pino Del Puerto de la Graja’.
Going down towards the Jarapalos fountain there are some cliffs on the left – Tajo La Yedra & Tajo Del Caballo.
Pass the Calera de Jarapalos and a big Alberca (Reservoir).
Going down some stone steps and following the Sequia fountains, there is picnic area near the Forestry building: the right place to take a break.
Leaving the picnic area at the junction of the large chestnut tree, go uphill, with a slight gradient back up to Graja pass.
