To fight with the cold or to be cold. I do not know! The point is that we decided to do this route of walking through the Fuenfría Valley with the ascent to Puerto de la Fuenfría.
We left from the Cercedilla train station on a cold day to start suddenly climbing towards the Cerro del Colgado. Then we pass through the Dehesas, but always along the slope until we reach the small reservoir of the Casa Forestal de las Dehesas.
Through Poyal del Rubio we continue climbing up the slope towards Pico de Majalasna where we already take the GR-10. And along the track of the Carretera de la República, we pass through the Umbría de Navazuela, the Puente de Hierro de la Navazuela and the Puente de En medio. Until reaching the Puerto de la Fuenfría. Our highest point and where a cold wind was channeled.
We quickly started the descent down the opposite slope to the one we used to climb. Going through the Hoyuelo and the Ladera del Infierno until arriving at Cercedilla again near the train station.
