RV Location:     La Plaza de la Iglesia, La Garapacha. (38.248618 N   -1.186735 W) Go through Baños de Fortuna, heading for Fortuna. As you enter Fortuna, turn right at the traffic lights for La Garapacha. Alternatively, meet at El Fogon ready to depart in convoy by 09.00hrs.

Lunch: Nothing arranged, but I`ll be heading back to Bar 28 in Hondón. La Puerta Grande at Los Baños de Fortuna is a good option local to the walk.

Description:    A more or less continuous climb, mainly on good broad tracks and tarmac to the summit of La Pila, the highest (1264m) peak in our local area. There are no technically difficult sections (apart from the usual loose stones on ascents/descents), and the walk is suitable for dogs with well-behaved owners.

Other:    This quite a long walk – as always you should carry more than enough water for your personal needs and sufficient foodstuffs to keep you fuelled up!
