This walk is mostly through open grass meadows or 'dehesas', with extensive views to the surrounding hills. We begin in the little town of El Pedroso, which takes its name from the many boulders and interesting rocky outcrops that litter the dehesas in this area. We take a track heading westerly from the town, passing meadows that are often carpeted with wildflowers. We then turn north and follow the course of the Arroyo de las Canas (the Stream of the Reeds), which offers some welcome shade and cooling water. In the hottest months of the year, you are likely to see the local black pigs wallowing in muddy pools along the course of this stream. The return route to El Pedroso is via the Vereda de Navahonda, one of the old cattle tracks that criss-cross the region.
