Check weather forecasts before setting off to hike.
Don´t go alone.
Tell someone your intended destination and expected time of arrival.
Carry a small rucksack with warm clothing, waterproofs, food and plenty of water.
Don´t forget such simple items as: sun hat, protective cream and sun glasses.
Carry a mobile phone with fully-charged battery, a map and, if possible, a compass. They will probably never be used but, when required, are of vital importance.

REMARKS: The route has two parts. One of them is a circuit in the most attractive, interesting zone: the laurel forest of Cubo de La Galga. The other part provides a connection to the main road (bus-stop), Montaña de La Galga (a splendid viewpoint) or the GR 130 (option of continuing towards Puntallana or Los Sauces). The PR LP 5 can also be descended to reach the housing at El Pósito, on the main road.
