Yesterday, with my hiking group, we made a circular route leaving the village of La Hiruela towards El Cardoso, following El Jarama riverbed, until reaching the picnic area opposite the entrance to the Montejo beech forest. We continued a short way along an asphalt road until a forest trail that took us back to La Hiruela. The total distance covered was slightly above 14 km. And, with a small break to get our strength back, it took us less than 4 hours. The weather conditions were good, cold but windless for the most part of the walk.
