Directions: Encebras is just off the CV 83 a few kilometres outside Pinoso, the turn is adjacent to Rafael’s Restaurant, leave the CV 83 at this point and continue on the minor road for three kilometres until you come to the village, the parking is beside the road on a turning to the right.
Lunch: Nothing arranged, but if required on the day we have a restaurant in Pinoso that can cope with us just turning up; so, decisions on the day!
Walk Description: This is a circular walk on metalled roads, unmade roads and tracks. Most of the climbing is quite gentle on minor roads, with one fairly steep section on a mountain track. The descent is also fairly gentle on unmade and metalled roads.
Equipment: Walking boots providing ankle support recommended and a stick or pole if you feel uncomfortable on loose footings, climbs or descents.
Dogs: This walk is suitable for well behaved dogs under owner control.
Other: Brian Grass, who found this walk, will be your leader for this walk. Some of you will not have met Brian, as he has not been able to walk with us so far this season, but he is an amiable and competent leader, so no worries.
