From Hondón de los Frailes take the CV-845 in the direction of Barbaroja, pass through Barbaroja and the road becomes the MU-410, continue on through Macisvenda and Barinas until you come to the RM-422 and turn right towards Yecla and Jumilla.

Continue approximately 7Km and come to a turn off to the left by a white marble tritadura plant, the RM-A10, take this road and after about 2Km where the road forks take the left fork past a large solar panel farm on the right.

Continue a further 2 Km and watch out for low level signs (Olive green what else?) on the right. Turn into the minor road and follow it for about 200m and park in the Guest House car park. (About a 27 min drive from HDLF)

Special Notes: This will be the last walk before the summer recess, so something of an end of term party!
