Pena la Cabra : fantastic views

If you love wild landscapes, nature, and silence this walk is for you. Set off from the Puerto de la Puebla and follow along the line of the ridge. There is therefore very little climbing (200 metres). Families with children will quickly find big meadows to have a picnic. The scenery is superb. 
Take the track which exits to the right of the road following the direction of the climb to the Puerta (towards the south). 
Follow the markers until you reach a big antena with solar panels. Follow the markers again. Pass alongside a cabin before going down the hill Tiesa. Cross a forest path to go in the direction of peña la Cabra following the markers until you reach a grassy channel that climbs to the hill at the foot of the peña.

Practical information

Getting there: Take the A1. At km 79, take direction Piñuecar then Prádena del Rincón. When you arrive in the village, take the sign to Puebla de la Sierra and park at Puerto de Puebla de la Sierra.
