Parte del Camino de Santiago y ruta GR-124, se le llama Ruta del Agua por algo, cruza el arroyo Tejada en más de 10 ocasiones, y aunque son pasos fáciles, tras la epoca de lluvias o nevadas baja con bastante más caudal de lo habitual, con hasta 15 centímetros de altura de agua en los pasos, que se pueden hacer montados cuidando sobre todo las orillas, donde se acumula mucha arena suelta.
Por lo demás es un tramo sencillo, pero bonito, en el que te cruzas con algunos ciclistas, y pocos senderistas.
Part of the Camino de Santiago and route GR-124, it's called 'Ruta del Agua' for something, it crosses the Tejada stream more than 10 times, and although they are easy crosings, after the rainy or snowy season it goes down with a lot more flow than usual, with up to 15 centimeters of water height in the steps, which can be rided by taking care especially the brinks, where a lot of loose sand accumulates.
It is a simple, but nice ride, in which you cross paths with some cyclists, and very few hikers.
