    A nice hike, starting at the Guadalmina dam (where you can easily park). There was not much water in the river so we were able to go down and walk next to it for a while.

    We took a longer steeper way up but from the summit ran out of time so instead of taking the circular descended the quickest way along the road to Benahavis.

    THANK YOU JACQUI, I walked this route before with you, but needed reminding. Beautiful walk and we got a clear day.
