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.
