I followed a nice description of the walk available at walkinginandalucia.com, so I won't repeat the directions here. However, note two things:

  • the duration given for the walk is 3:05, but I was able to complete it in 2:25,
  • at some point you may find yourself in what looks like a dead end at the bottom of a cliff. It's not. Just go right, there's an opening in the rocks with an easy path, but it's somewhat hidden.
