This walk has fabulous views and is an easy one, though about 9 km long with only a few, quite gentle hills.  The route is along dirt tracks as well as narrow paths through beautiful vegetation and passes old cork oak trees. There are occasional stops to take in the wonderful views over Lake Concepción towards Istán and La Concha mountain. The turning point for the return is at a rustic goat breeding farm where there may be baby goats.
