Galapagar trails

We are going to start a fun and very mousetrap route that mostly runs through the municipality of Galapagar.

We start at the Molino de la Hoz Urbanization and exit through the Molino de la Hoz dam on the Guadarrama River. Here we already find the first path that takes us to the Puente del Retamar, also on the Guadarrama.

Then a steep climb begins, the longest and strongest of the day, along the Camino Viejo de Madrid. That, although it is a pistero, it is full of trails and variants of trails that you must be attentive to the track so as not to go by and that in any case they go almost parallel.

We arrive at Colmenarejo and turn towards the University to immediately go out to look for trails along the Arroyo de Peralera. Then we take the Vereda de las Tapias Altas and the Vereda del Camino del Rey which, although they are tracks, always has a parallel path. At the end we arrive at the Hermitage of Nuestra Señora De La Soledad in the Recreational Area of the Hermitage of Colmenarejo.

Along the paths parallel to the Cañada Real del Camino de Madrid, we descend towards the Valmayor Reservoir and border it to the Cañada Real Segoviana, which we also ride along the parallel paths.

We arrive at the Ermita del Cerrillo, already at the end of Galapagar, and we leave through the Guijo crossing the M-510, to continue through Las Columnas and enter Galapagar town to leave and return to walk through the Nido del Águila that brings us closer to Los Jarales where we visit the Alcanzorla Bridge, also called La Alcanzorra, which is an engineering work of Muslim origin. Precise enclave in a gorge of the Guadarrama river.

We leave the urbanization crossing the Juan de Herrera Bridge, and then go parallel to the train track in Torrelodones and go out to look for trails through the Gasco Urbanization.

Now we have an ascent per track, and without trail variants, towards Casa Panarras and on the way down and back to Molino de La Hoz we can now enjoy the last dose of trails.
