Starting from the delightful and different village of Fuente Camacho (Camacho's Well), the walk descends past a unique round rock-built house to a still functioning salt workings, where salt was taken on mule trains to Málaga in Roman times for onward shipment to Rome, then on down a track. The track passes through olive groves and fields of peas over a fordable stream down to a tiny hamlet, which still uses an ancient irrigation system based on dykes. You then ascend to the small and pretty village of Cuesta Blanca (White Hill), which enjoys a traditional hand clothes-washing area. You ascend out of the village on a minor road to come onto a track through olive groves, which re-crosses the Granada - Seville railway up to a fantastic cortijo, to pass a small pond where you can view startled terrapins sunbathing or swimming.
