    Nice hike with kids! We parked half of the way and walked following the road. The GPS track came in handy when looking for the "Torrecillas" as some parts of that specific trail are not well marked.

    Muy buena ruta.
    Tristemente, de las torrecillas ya sólo queda una, pues los visitantes se suben para tomarse fotos y han colapsado.
    Un gran paseo.
