Senda del helipuerto


The trajectory begins south of Las Mestas, on your right after you have crossed the bridge. It is indicated on a boat. The broad, well-delimited path steeply rises besides the bed of the river, leading along pine trees, chestnut trees, strawberry trees as well as bushes. It starts to serpentine and, further ahead, crosses another path. But we continue our walk on the same one, leading us to "Arroladrones", which lies on the southern slope of the Sierra del Cordón, where also "Helipuerto" is situated.
