Our walk will begin at Los Bermejales. It is an area surrounded by pine and oak trees. The route descends and we will walk through an impressive gorge. Sometimes we will cross the river or we will walk on the eroded base of the gorge walls. This section of the hike is equipped with ropes, ladders and hanging bridges.
The color of the rocks, the valley and the vegetation are the features of the area. The geological history is very interesting. The sediments, which are now eroded, were part of a beach full of life in the past. We will find fossils which will show us this history.
The hike along the river Cacin is only 5 km long, but fantastic and an adventure for kids. The Roman bridge will be the finishing point of this part of the walk. Our way back will be along a dirt road through farmland. Depending on the temperatures of the day we can arrange cars to avoid mid-day walking
