TOLOX – RIO GRANDE
There is a drive from the meeting point to the start of the walk near Tolox (car sharing is recommended). The walk itself is in the Rio Grande Valley close to Tolox where the river is still small. It follows a dirt track past pomegranate trees, orange trees and olive groves. At the half way stage there will be a break next to the river. There are a couple of very shallow streams to cross as well as some hills to ascend.
The route is in the shape of a figure 9. The start and end point is at a country venta where refreshments can be taken afterwards.
