We will enjoy an easy trail, with history, charm and spectacular views.
Dehesas are large flat pasture lands adapted for the feeding of animals such as cows, bulls, etc.
In Colmenar Viejo, just over 30 minutes away from Madrid, will take place our route, also known as the “Gateway to the Sierra of Guadarrama”. It has a rich landscape and ecological value where famou sdirectors as Sergio Leone or Clint Eastwood filmed Wild West movies, since the landscapes are very similar to the American prairies and where you can see eagles and other aerial predators, as well as their prey: rabbits. Luckily will also see cows if they have let them out to graze 🐄.
In addition to the views, we’ll visit ancient ruins of the Visigoths people, who inhabited the area more than 15 centuries ago.
In the middle of the hike, we will have a picnic to rest, eat, enjoy the views of Manzanares castle and it’s reservoir and begin our return.
This is a beautiful route of easy level, accessible to all.
This is an easy level route suitable for everyone of about 13km and 190m of gradual elevation.
