This route begins on the A-377 road, taking a path that descends the Barranco de la Zarabanda towards the Guadiaro river. It continues through the path de Las Rosas España that runs parallel to the river heading north. The route leaves this path by taking a detour on the right, next to the Pacheco country house, and ascends the Barranco de Las Hoyas to reach the starting point. This circular route runs the same 2.7 km at the beginning and end.

The landscape of the Zarabanda stream is formed by reed beds, wild olive trees, cork oaks and Mediterranean vegetation. Near the Guadiaro river, there are large areas of citrus trees.

 

Directions to Meeting Point.

 

From Marbella follow the A7 in the direction of Gibraltar; go past the Estepona exits, keep left and join the AP7 Toll Road. Take exit 142 just before the main Toll Station. This exit road swings to the right where there is a toll payable (Toll €1.00). At the roundabout ahead, take the 2nd exit onto road A-377. Carry on this road for about 2 km then turn sharp left and park, and this is the meeting point.
