Walk #308: Tuesday 13th Jan’ Frailes

Walking near Hondon de las NievesPost Walk update from Phil:On the 13th January, again in wonderful sunshine, we gathered in HDLF and 19 people and a couple of well behaved dogs set off on the 10Km circuit from the Town Hall in Frailes, up the hill towards San Cayetano along the track that looks down on the valley. We then descended opposite the Los Serranos concrete tube factory on the HDLN road and back to HDLF on the old road arriving back at Bar Vienticho 28 almost exactly 2 hrs and 30 mins after we had left it. Either we are getting fitter or this was an easier walk… Yes, OK it was the latter!

#308: This is a circular walk of about 10Km with a height gain of 250m, starting and finishing at Bar 28 opposite the Town Hall in Hondón de los Frailes (38.273408°N -0.927815°E) at 10.00. This is a mixture of made roads, tracks and unmade roads. After a short walk on the level to get the legs and lungs going we do all the climbing in the early stages of the walk, after which it is roughly level or downhill. (For those who survived the Marcha in December, this is roughly the same route in reverse, albeit easier as we go down the steep hill instead of up it!)

Again about two and a half hours I should think with a group, but you never know, you surprised me in November!

I will work on the February walks now and try to let you know what they will be before I become unavailable, but you can expect a Blossom walk early in February to take in the Almond Blossom.
