Route summary: The route begins and finish in Riomalo CTR, surrounding the Sierra del Cordón. Shortly after the beginning, it leaves asphalt and reaches the Mirador de la Antigua and the marvellous meander of Alagón river, Melero. Later the path turns again and again, following the contour lines, while it goes along with the river in its way towards the reservoir of Gabriel and Galán. The route changes the Alagón river by the course of the Hurdano towards Arrolobos, a small village that crosses another of our routes. Then the itinerary looks for the main road of Las Hurdes, in order to finish in Riomalo CTR, a few kilometers later.
The route offers beautiful panoramic views of the course of Alagón river, Arca and Buitrera (Natural Park of Las Batuecas - Sierra de Francia) and the reservoir of Gabriel y Galán.
