Yegen, circular route (6-8 km)

You can do one of the small circular walks from the village or do them both! 1) Trail Walk of the Health (5 km) a walk which climbs to the Fountain of the Health and head back to Yegen through a beautiful gorge bordered by huge chestnut trees. 2) Brenan Trail (Sendero de Brenan): an agreeable stroll that was a favourite of the famous English writer, once resident of Yegen (it takes about 1,5 hours). Walking through olive and almond groves, and visiting the ancient fortress at Peñon del Fuerte, we enjoy views over a fairytale lunar landscape, to return to Yegen climbing along an old trail which ends at an interesting old fountain and wash-stone.
