A very pleasant walk in fairly level, upland karst type scenery, including an old mule path through a barranco, short stretches of track, and long "improved" goat paths among undulating hills with mountains in the background. A sharp climb to the saddle below Cau from where there is the opportunity of a short climb to its summit. Then continuing along short tracks and a long path down to the CV749 and car(s). The views are excellent and the wildflowers in spring and early summer fascinating. For those making a long day of it a visit to the Iris Garden in the middle of the walk is rewarding in April to June when it is at its best. (Opens April 1st). A possible short cut is described at the end.

Great walk but today on the shortcut we found dozens of bee hives on what was supposed to be a cleared circle. The bees did not like our passing and neither did we. Passing the house we climbed the hill to find the main walk.
