We started the route from the Hoyo de Manzanares Water Deposit and started walking along the Camino de Villalba. And we continue along the Camino de la Casa del Monte to the Corvacho Waterfall. Also known as Chorrera del Covacho, a small waterfall produced by the waters of the Arroyo de Peña Herrera.
We leave there going up the immense granite stone slab, which will take us along the Arroyo de la Peña Herrera path initially, but which then turns left towards Hilo Blanco.
We take the ascent to the Mirador de Peñaliendre, currently the house is in ruins, but we can enjoy the views of the Guadarrama Basin.
We undo the turnoff path to the Peñaliendre viewpoint and continue climbing to pass through the Silla del Diablo at 1,388 meters above sea level. And we continue climbing until we reach the geodesic vertex of the Estepar of 1,402,840 meters above sea level, easily recognizable by its white cross and from where we can see La Torre del Estepar and the entire magnitude of the Sierra de Hoyo de Manzanares from its highest point.
We make the descent through the Peña del Buho at 1,264 meters above sea level, which returns us to the Camino de Villalba and from there to the starting point.
Max elevation: 1389 m
Total climbing: 750 m
