Grade 1  
A mountain bike route passing through the desert landscape and valley of the Rio Castril.It contrasts greatly with the route set in the Mountains of the Sierra de Castril .Starting at Cortijo Sierra Castril it follows tracks trough the olive and almond groves to the plateau above Almontaras. After a few hundred meteres on the road the route drops down to the valley bottom on good but some very steep double track. The treack continues through Poplar plantations in the valley bottom before exiting through the Castril Gorge. This is a great ride to see Buzzards and other smaller raptors. The route takes in two climbs of around 300m and two steep and challenging descents. Finish in Castril at a cafe, then back to Puentezuela for tea and cakes
