Route description 

Almond tree groves, fields of crops and old cattle grazing areas make up the first part of the route as it climbs steadily, reaching 700 metres above sea level at its highest point. From here it starts to gently descend, snaking between olive groves and thickets. You will soon come across the Palacios cave, which sits above the canyon and boasts magnificent views of Somontano, the Sierra de Guara and a section of the Pyrenees. 

Finally, the path winds along the side of the canyon and joins a track that returns back to Estada.
