Location

Madrid

Description

This path, created in 1999, has the singularity of being a combined initiative of a neighbourhood coordinator and an ecologist group seeking to recover an old path used by Spanish monarchs when moving around the nearby Madrid sierra.

Its planned start is in the capital itself, although given that the construction of two footbridges to cross over certain roads is foreseen, it is wise to start in Pitis, with the underground and railway station. From there, always bordering the wall of the El Pardo Mount, Tres Cantos is reached.Then, along the Tejada Stream, which is extensive and with almost no vegetation, you will reach Colmenar Viejo. The landscape changes to become rocky and the high moorlands of Madrid are abandoned to enter the first sierras of Cabeza Illescas. Shortly afterwards and at the end of a pleasant forest, Manzanares El Real.
