We're doing a hike that's incredible for this time of the year. Completely off the beaten path for the most part, and perfect to see the autumn trees in their explosion of red, yellow and orange colors. We will take off from the town of Bustarvierjo, small village at the end of bus line 725, that I'm sure most have never heard about. After a hike up the mountain pass, we'll be rewarded by a natural little gift, a birch forest, tiny and secluded, that fortunately managed to stay away from human construction and highways, surviving among little creeks and many other tree species such as oaks, poplars, junipers, black firs, hollies, ashes, Douglas pine trees.... It's a small beautiful scenario that's hard to believe can be so close to a big capital city. It's a little secret jewel. After a loop to check the cute corners this zone has to show, including a pretty waterfall, we'll take a way back to Bustarviejo where we'll go for a very well deserved beer, before heading back to Madrid. We have no rush, because there are buses running to Madrid all evening long, until 22h, so keep those beers coming!! SPECS • Type: Circular •Duration (with all breaks): 7 h approx • Level: Medium. The overall level of our hikes is based on: Distance, time, incline and terrain. Read below before you decide! Some people are okay with long and flat while some others prefere steep and short. - Distance 17 km - Time: Around 6h -Incline: It doesn't have specially steep stretches, it runs in a gradual uphill/downhill all the time, still you'll be walking a 600m incline on the way there and the same on the way downhill. - Terrain: Flat for the most part, but some with stretches and some slippery rocky parts, but no dangerous exposed air passages or rock climbs.
