Sierra de Cazorla. Ascent of the river Linarejos - Cola de Caballo - Cerrada de Utrero. Jaén trekking routes

Time: Four hours.

We shall leave Arroyo Frío town along a rad leading to Cazorla. At first, the route is downwards and is accompained by large old pines trees, and abundant pineapples and squirrels.

At a turn on the road, crossing a bridge in the area known as El Valle, there is an upward lane which turns parallel to the river throughout the whole stretch, which initially crosses a leafy pinewood.

The river, with its great wild beauty, offers an important variety of flowers and bushes even though it is not endowed with the classic beauty of woods on either side. Walking on along it, changing banks at times and after a steep ascent, we shall observe from far, on the left bank on a vertical wall, the fabulous waterfall known as Cola de Caballo, which ash at the botton a gloomy puddle of water.

After crossing the river, which would be even dangerous in winter we shall take the left side as we are going up, until reaching the track known as the Cerrada de Utrero, with its reservoir and inaccessible edges, which facilitates an almost wild flora.

The route ends into the Cazorla-Vadillo Catril road and very near the Linarejos camping area.
