Cross the main road and continue across the small road on the right cemented Proxi. At the end, turn left and then right after the first house. We arrive on the trail, follow it to the descent on the right.


At the intersection of the main road, cross towards the Proxi and continue across the trail cemented.

On leaving the village, we start with a short descent to the river. The path is well marked between the old stone walls.

We cross the river (which is a "river") on a metal bridge and ride it continues on the left through the scrub: heather, myrtle, mastic, strawberry trees, cistus, lavender and immortal.

Arriving at the open space on the left is the old mill, a pretty ruin contiguous to the creek. It takes the right path lined with pine trees and other Mediterranean species. After we joined the wide track is continued on the right. One can admire the walls of round stones and cork oaks.

Another open space on meadows with animals (cattle), we head right to follow the path that winds through the undergrowth green oak and pine to the metal bridge that is taken in the other direction to return... and rising towards the starting point.
