This walk is for dry weather as it includes dried up river beds. Should it have been very wet an appropriate local alternative will be available. It follows the Arroyo del Bujo and the Arroyo Comendador. The start uses local tracks then we reach the first arroyo. We follow this slowly up then turn off onto tributary which gradualy narrows. We use goat tracks to avoid the odd blockage. It opens out again until we turn off onto a broad track that climbs over the mountain into the next valley. The track becomes a paved road which follows the river. At some point one can re-enter the river bed or stay on the road back to the start.
