|Opposite to the tourist information centre
(265 m), on the other side of the A-372, you find a narrow uphill road
paved with stones. The road leads to a bridge (10min) (265 m). Do not
cross it, but fork off left on a path
by an information panel on the route "Río Majaceite". The river
flows on your right. After crossing a bridge you come to a track (24min)
(280 m). The path continues on the opposite side marked with a white
arrow and a sign for Benamahoma.
Walking towards the Sierra
del Labradillo you cross a couple of bridges before crossing the
river (35min) (295 m). When the path forks (39min) (295 m), climb the steps
on your right to a track and turn left. Walk some 60 meters to the
beginning of a path
with a signpost "2,3 km Benamahoma".
Again you cross the river (43min) (305 m) that descends in small cascades
along a mossig bed. After crossing
three more times, you continue on its right side. Do not pay attention
to the paths branching off left, but continue on the right hand side to
the end of the path (1h40min) (405 m). You see the village of Benamahoma
in front of you and a sign for Ecomuseo del Agua pointing to the left.
Return on the path back to the track (2h15min) (300 m), and continue
along the track without paying attention to the paths going to the
right. Lined by green hills
the road passes the Botanical Garden of El Castillejo (2h31min) (330 m)
and descends to El Bosque (2h33min) (310 m). Do not continue to the
centre of the village (Centro Ciudad), but go right to the road paved
with stones. You come to the bridge (2h45min) (265 m) and return on the
familiar road back to the beginning of the route (2h53min).
