From the water tank, cross the road and take a wide dirt path which quickly narrows as it enters the forest. It leads to big oak trees and then a water tank. Take the path on the left signposted Tuves bridge. It descends rapidly towards the river. When you arrive at a large trail, turn left and descend towards Tuves bridge. After a detour to the bridge, take the path up the river. When you reach Rey bridge, turn left along the wide path, then turn left quickly along the path past two ruins. Climb up to the departmental road and follow it on the left for a few hundred metres.
