The trail first leads us to the Trevenque Viewpoint (also called Pensamientos -Spanish for ‘thoughts’- Viewpoint), from where we can enjoy the view and interpretation of the unique landscape of this area of Sierra Nevada.
Then we continue along a path surrounded by scrub and pine forest that brings us towards Trevenque Mountain. Then the trail descends in the direction to a sandy spot and surrounds the slope of Trevenque until Cortijo Rosales, a magnificent viewpoint of the Alayos profile.
We continue until we reach the river, located very close to outlet channel that carries water to the power plant of Dílar. Finally, we return to the first viewpoint passing by the ruins of “Cortijo Sevilla”, always overlooking the cliffs and the valley.
We recommend carrying 2l of water. It is possible to refill our water bottles at the source of “Cortijo Rosales”, but this point is near the end of the trip!
