Time: About eight hours. Very recommendable for two day march.
We´ll leave from Segura on the road border to the north, towards
Río Madera with mountain tracings. The lanscape is really spectacular
with steeps mountains and mountainrange, wild forest and pines. The most
exhuberant zone in the natural park.
We follow our road leaving on the right a deflection towards the village
of Moralejo, we take the next crossroad can the right, leaving on the
left the village of Orcera and follow in course to Río Madera.
After passing different camping signs and following in course to Río
Madera, we´ll find not far from the crossroad 1 km. more or less
a cort-rut of gravle, quite wide near a fountain signed as the cort-rut
of the fountain of the Tejo which will be our next course to follow. The
cort-rut is very wide with strong descents of course sand, but the zone
is really surprising and wild. Soon we can see the peak of the Espino
1,722 m. high and following this wonderful cort-rut, we go by a forestal
house on the right with its access way and then another one on the left
which we don´t follow either. So we get to a beautiful landscape
and begin a descent.
Following along the cort-rut we see a great stone but we can pass it and
then a smaller way comes, quite closed and with pendent rising and very
different from the one that we had passed descending. This is the cort-rut
that we must take, it has the access to a very difficult zone of several
cort-ruts, much more difficult in winter with lots of mud.
Have situated we´ll arrive to a crossroad and we´ll take on
the left to go up a very inclined uphill, we´ll get to a fell and
the way opens in two news again, the one on the right drives to the hill,
apporite it we can see a rocky mountain and a crossing with a tree in
the middle, painted with orientation symbols.
From here we can see a very wide zone.
Arriving to this point we´ll turn on the left towards Peguera del
Madroño and we´ll start a great descend on a cort-rut which
is very bad at the beginning with big stones and very near to the precipice
on its right. While we go down, the way gets better and clear and soon
we are going to see many other ways going up which we must not take. So
follow our way going down because we go to the valley.
Sometimes the direction changes, at first we went to the north and now
and for long time we´ll keep the south course.
We must be ignorant to all cort-ruts on the right and on the left to the
different farmhouses and granges and soon we see on the other side of
the valley the wonderful village Peguera del Madroño inimitable
example of popular architecture integrated in the lanscape, peace and
