We will leave the cars at the cemetery of Salares. This will be the starting point of our hiking route. First we will walk along the road. After the road, we will follow a dirt track. Big orange and olive trees will give us some shade. Finally the path along the river will start. We will enter a gorge with huge walls. The gorge is called: Barranco de la Luna. This part of the route will be refreshing and it’s perfect during the hot summer months. We will usually walk in the river and our ankles and sometimes knees will be underwater.
The color of the walls, the tracks of fossils, vegetation and the fresh air are special features from the hiking route. It’s a delight for all the senses.
