We start the route in Molino de La Hoz and take the path that enters the field crossing the Arroyo de la Isabela and we continue passing it through the base of the La Isabela slope of 757 meters above sea level.
We continue the Camino de la Isabela climbing the Mount of the Gurugú of 839 masl where we see the silhouette of the Casa de Panarras at dawn. We continue along the same track, which changes its name to the Camino del Pardillo, descending to Torrelodones and crossing the train track at the point where it is buried, just at the height of the access to the Finca Nueva del Enebrillo.
From there we go to the Torrelodones Watchtower, which dates from its construction in the Umayyad period of Al-Ándalus, between the 9th and 11th centuries. And where we can take some nice photos with the orange sun of the day being born.
On the way down we enter Torrelodones for a moment but immediately take the Cordel de Hoyo de Manzanares. It does not take the M-618 road towards Hoyo de Manzanares and we will go parallel to it along the side paths until we reach Monte de Las Nieves where we will enter Cantos Negros, a Biosphere Reserve of the Upper Basin of the Manzanares River.
We will pass by the Finca de los Cantos Negros, now abandoned, and we will go down trails to cross the Arroyo de Trofa (or Trofas). And from there on trails we pedal towards the Finca El Pendolero, where events are currently held.
We already collided with the fence of Monte de El Pardo and we went down parallel to it until we crossed the Arroyo de Trofas again. From this point we go up all the Matas until passing the train track and the highway through the steps of the Las Matas station.
We enter the Urbanización del Golf and quickly leave the Lazarejo Natural Area. Where we play along the paths of the Arroyo Lazarejo riverbed until we pass between the Urbanization of El Cantizal, also by footpaths and which returns us to the Urbanization of Molino de La Hoz, also by footpath. Where we make the final photo in its dam.
