Se ha conservado esta ruta a pesar de que el chozo desapareció, de la noche a la mañana, un día cualquiera a primeros de otoño de 2008. No obstante, el chozo merece ser recordado.

Salimos de la localidad por el charco Maldonado y el camino nos va a llevar directamente, sin tomar ninguna desviación, hasta las laderas del Páramo de los Torozos. Pero antes de alejarnos mucho de Tordehumos podemos contemplar algunos palomares, verdaderas joyas de la arquitectura tradicional.

Al cruzar una pista asfaltada, si fuéramos a la izquierda veremos de cerca más palomares en estado de abandono. Hacia la derecha llegaríamos a la Ermita de la Virgen de la Vega.

Atravesamos por un puente de piedra; por debajo pasó el agua que movía el molino de Abajo. Dejamos atrás el Río Sequillo y la carretera y, entre campos de labor, algunos almendros y chopos, nos plantamos en el comienzo de la falda con la compañía de milanos y cernícalos.

A la izquierda estuvo el Chozo de Miraflores. La verdad es que era un chozo único: de base cuadrangular, de cúpula terminada en punta, seguramente no habría otro con esa peculiaridad en toda la provincia. Sirvió durante siglos para que pastores y dueños de majuelos se guarecieran por la noche o del mal tiempo. Parece que el Ayuntamiento de Tordehumos tiene la intención de reconstruirlo en otro lugar. Ojalá que el proyecto llegue a buen puerto y podamos volver a refugiarnos en él para experimentar la fortaleza de las piedras colocadas sin cemento ni barro.

En la ladera hay pinos de repoblación, algunos almendros, rosales silvestres y plantas aromáticas variadas.

Ya arriba divisamos Tordehumos recostado en su cerro y buena parte de la llanura de Tierra de Campos. Ha sido una excursión justo entre los límites de esa tierra y el páramo.
