Walk Description: From the RV we go right along narrow roads to San Cayetano, but at that junction we go straight up. After about 200 meters we turn left and then arrive at a crossing with the road from the picnic spot. From here the people who want to go back to the picnic spot can do so if they wish a shorter walk. (Total length about 4 kilometers).

From this point we turn right to the farm with the peacocks. There we go down to the big Finca at Calle Bayon and so back to the picnic spot to the left.

Other: Our walk leader will be Cees van Steen.
