RED LOCAL ROBLEDILLO DE LA JARA
RUTA 3. Camino de Valdehierro
Point of departure:
Robledillo de la Jara. C/ Cuesta de San Pedro
Recorrido lineal de baja dificultad que parte de Robledillo de la Jara y llega hasta el límite municipal con Cervera de Buitrago.
The route starts from the Cuesta de San Pedro, next to the church of Robledillo de la Jara, along with the Path of genaro, way 70 km long that connects to each other all the villages of the Commonwealth Reservoir of the Atazar. Both pass next to the Museum of Lifestyles of the Past and turn right on the way to Valdehierro, which is well signposted with an informative trail and some wooden beacons. Some 350 m, the path of the Genaro is separated from the left, in the direction of the Collado de Fragéela and alto de Matachines topped by an antenna, while the Valdehierro Way continues straight ahead. Several information panels drive the tour. After crossing two streams the route reaches the municipal boundary between Robledillo de la Jara and Cervera de Buitrago. At this point, descriptive posters of the fauna and flora of the environment have been installed. From here the return begins by the same path.
The route crosses extensive areas of jars accompanied by thyme, Marjoram, rosemary and button, among other species. These scrub cover the old cereal fields, today totally abandoned, like the cattle fold that can be seen midway through. Old, this whole area was covered by holm oaks accompanied by peach and whining oaks in the coolest and wetter areas.
The Dehesa Boyal de Abajo stands out in the landscape, Monte de Utilidad Pública de Robledillo de la Jara, whose wooded formations of peach oak and whining contrast with the surrounding scrub. You can also see the Sierras de La Cabrera and Guadarrama and, at the end of the route, there is a good viewpoint to observe the landscape in which the elevation of El Cancho de la Cabeza stands out (1.264 m) across the El Atazar reservoir, en el municipio de Patones.
