Mijas - Fuente de Jarapalos

Start Point:
Google "Bar Osunillas Mijas" and click on the "Maps" Tab. It is about 1.5 kms from the Mijas BP garage along the Benalmadena road (A368), and then turn right down towards Polideportivo Osunillas. The bar is on the left hand side of the road, and there is plenty of parking in a carpark a little further down that road. Coffee/breakfast at 09.30 and we leave the bar for the walk start at 10.00
8 km Duration: 2.5 hrs
Meet Point:
Bar Osunillas
10:00 Leader: Jacquie Pinnell
We drive from the bar back to the main road and turn right direction Benalmadena. After a few hundred metres there is a stony bridge on a sharp bend. Turn left here and a little further up the hill turn left again opposite a mineral water company building called La Manantial La Ermitica. The road winds uphill for about 2 or 3 ks or so to a quarry, go on to the second carpark, where you cannot drive any further. (or follow me from the bar!) The walk is mostly on wide stony tracks with wonderful views over the countryside towards Cartama, Pizarra, and Alora. There is a lovely place to have a lunch/snack stop, near the springs of Jarapalos. Then return via a short uphill section up stone steps and back on the same wide track again. Mostly easy walk but some long gentle uphill stretches. Back to Bar Osunillas for drinks and tapas lunch. We need to leave the bar by 2pm as it fills up with local workers for their lunch break.
