In this section we'll pass from the Mediterranean slopes of the Almanzora to the Atlantic slopes of the Guadiana Menor, a tributary of the Guadalquivir. The route runs almost parallel to the old train line that used to join Baza and Huercal-Overa.
The line has been dismantled, and there is a future project to convert this into a 'Vía Verde' (green way) in 2009, in which case it might be a better alternative for this section of the route. In the meantime, we have drawn the route through the Ramblas (gullies) of Almanzora and Pilancones. In this way, squeezed between the forest and the sandstone walls full of bird nests, we climb up to El Hijate, an independent district of the municipality of Alcóntar with a certain amount of development due to its location next to the N-323 highway.
Leaving El Hijate we enter the province of Granada, travelling through the high plateu of Baza with the Jabalcón mountains in the background in order to get to La Rambla de Valcabra (Valcabra Gully).
