Agua Negra.

The walk departs from the recreation area of the Fuente de la Calzada and heads towards the ruins of the Corrales de Agua Negra. Here we descend into the Agua Negra ravine. Once at the bottom, the path climbs steadily through the ravine with lush vegetation. Once we emerge from the ravine, the route takes a dirt road along the Fuente de la Parra in the direction of the Collado de Ibola. We leave the road that continues to the Collado de Ibola and follow the path towards El Molinar. We go back and forth to the top of the Pic Espadá. At the emblematic summit you have a view over the entire area. After visiting the top we continue walking over the ridge to a geodesic point. We continue towards the ravine of Neguero de la Sima. We descend via a stony path and arrive at the Cueva del Estuco. Ropes are attached to the entrance of the cave for enthusiasts who want to visit the cave. The path further reaches the dirt road that goes to the Collado de Ibola. We go in the other direction here and take an unmarked path that takes us back to the Corrales de Agua Negra and the starting point.
