  • 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.
