Video of the route

Description of the route

This route takes you along the right bank of the Entrepeñas reservoir, and covers some lively paths with several downward slides until it reaches the Las Brisas housing development. It then takes you along different paths and tracks until you reach the Peñalagos housing development. Carry on amongst the pines and the sands until you get to the Pareja diversion dam. There, just before the diversion dam you will start getting ready to climb the famous Mordor slope. Its name is fitting as there are sections with a 20% grade on a fairly technical path.

Once you reach the top you will travel along the entire crest of the mountain where there is a spectacular view of the reservoir, until you reach the cartero path to go back to Sacedón.
