LOCATION AND ACCESS
The Canchos (crags) del Vadillo (orthoquartzite outcrops) are located on the left bank of river Guadalija deep valley, by the “Armorican quartzites” in the Syncline of Guadarranque-Guadalija.
It is highly recommended to reach the viewpoint located opposite these Canchos and at a higher level. The visitor needs to take into account that these Canchos nest a great number of vultures. Therefore this area ensures, as a whole, geological, ornithological and landscape interest. So we must care about our presence will not disturb the normal course of the birds’ life in this area.
Accesses: We set off from Peraleda de San Román through the path of the Dehesilla leading to Guadalija and, at around 800m from the town, we take the left diversion to the nearby area of river Risco Sabino. From its mountain pass we descend along the forest path, already in the valley of Guadalija, and we continue straight until the path ends. From this point, the visitor will need to walk down in order to get a good overview of the Canchos del Vadillo, but not too much as there is an area of highly fractured quartzites that leave, among their layers, vertical drops of several meters, and therefore full attention will be needed.
