Circular hike round the Rio Lanjaron visiting the Casas Forestales de Tello and returning via the spectacular waterway, the "Acequia Nueva". This walk does involve quite a lot of ascent and there is a narrow (guarded) path to contend with alongside the waterways.

The walk starts from the bridge over the Rio Lanjaron at the eastern end of town. We rise up the old mule track to the Sierra Nevada before turning SE and coming back above town before dropping down to the Ermita Tajos de la Cruz. A wonderful viewpoint. An easy roadside walk leads back to the town.
