Our route starts at the interpretation centre “La Resinera”, close to the Los Bermejales reservoir. First we will walk along a forest track for about 3.5 km to get access to the trail of the river Cebollón. After the Berro fountain we will begin to walk along the riverbank. Sometimes the vegetation is blocking our way and we will change the side of the river to walk along. The trail will be refreshing and fun. We will see different waterfalls, little pools and reservoirs. We well return the same route, which we came.
