  • Nice waterfall in the Sierra of Guadarrama, in the header of the Valley of the Lozoya. To reach the same just follow any of the multiple paths that reach it. One of the most famous out of Rascafría, in the clips, from where approximately 1 h at a good pace you can get to the waterfall. The route is well signposted and with points of information. At the end of it there is a viewpoint to the waterfall. The section end of the route, according to you approach to the waterfall is of great beauty in parallel to the River with waters bluish and full of vegetation. On weekends it tends to be very busy. From the clips, in addition to the path indicated by signs there is another more parallel to the river that runs through a livestock farm (remember to let closed doors) that shortens times and this allowed its use. A route very advisable and for all the levels

  • Super family route that part of the parking lot of the clips at Rascafría (approximately 90 minutes by car from madrid x the A1 respecting speed signals). The route is 16 km between go and return being especially beautiful the last kilometer and a half (q is q runs closer River and the more steeply). Is a tour quite simple q hara the delights of them more small (aunq in them last 2 km there is that be pending of that not do too the goat and not is escalabren). Essential to carry sandwiches and good assortment of water (I imagine that in summer you must be a scorcher, we did now in winter and we were short of liquid). Usually it takes 4 hours (stopping to eat of course) to normal pace (we went in family). Only there are tables for eat to the principle of them clips that is just to the home of the walk by it that recommend trying to endure until get to the waterfall and sit is in some of them stones of the sidewalk of the river and enjoy of the landscape. All the way is well signposted and is quite difficult lose is if is work with sense common. The photos from the viewpoint of the waterfall are spectacular and near the riverbed of the river also. Highly recommended for families with children from 7 years old q esten aconstumbrados walk or couples or simply walkers like to enjoy a simple walk near the river.
