    Trail description

    Setting off from the Heritage Information Centre, the trail leads you up into the woodland along the track to the left, until you come to the first bend. Here, venture further into the greenery along a small path to the right. The path will soon start to flatten out near the Toledo ravine. Around you there are viñatigos, small-leaved holly bushes, follaos, laurels, Canarian ivy and brambles. Keep on walking to get to the wooden bridges and over the Toledo ravine. Here, step off the track and up a series of wooden steps to cross a similar bridge that leads to the glass caves and the Hundred-Year-Old Viñatigos. Turn around and walk back to the track you came off by the first bridge. Rejoin that track and you will notice the vegetation clearing around you into a more open landscape. A sharp right turn will take you to the Salto Blanco ravine. Back on the path, you will be led into a patch of pine forest that climbs gradually up after a sharp bend, running alongside the Las Mesetas road in the neighbouring municipality of El Sauzal. This coniferous area is a great habitat for sparrow hawks, long-eared owls and blue tits. A little further on, the trail flattens somewhat. Avoid turning right and stick to the main path until you come to an open area with no trees. A clearing in the pine forest. The path now takes you through the heath and comes out opposite the Lomo La Jara recreation area. From here, you can either turn back the way you came or descend along the forest track to the Heritage Information Centre.
