PUERTA VERDE (LAKE CONCEPCIÓN)

COTO DE RIO GUADAIZA, LA ZAGALETA
This is an ‘out and back’ walk above the Guadaiza river. The peaceful trail meanders through pine woods and rocky outcrops and affords magnificent views of the surrounding unspoilt countryside and to the sea. The walk is rated easy to medium.
BENAHAVÍS AQUEDUCT WALK

The walk then continues along the aqueduct before dropping down to the river and returning along a new trail by the river and then returning to the village by the boardwalk.
