Grazalema-Benaocaz-Villaluenga del Rosario (11-16 km)

Grazalema-Benaocaz-Villaluenga del Rosario (11-16 km)

This route takes you along the famous “Salto del Cabrero” (Goatherd’s Jump). The Salto del Cabrero is one of the most outstanding typographic forms of the mountains: a fault with two peaks that look alike, as if they were twins. The impressive vertical walls exceed 80 m in height and are separated by a gorge of only 50 m. You also may see some big birds with wide wings and a short, square tail circulating high. Without any doubt it is a griffon vulture that takes advantage of the cornice and the cracks of the cliffs that the Salto del Cabrero offers for nesting.

At the end of the route you come to the white village Benaocaz where you can have a drink, before taking the bus to Villalengua del Rosario (which only takes 10 minutes) or you can continue walking along the GR-7 trail to the next village (about 1,5 hour).
