This variety of landscapes, it welcomes a wide variety of vegetation and fauna such as birds, who live in the riverside forest, in the Mediterranean scrub or prefer scalloped cuts. Along the route we will also find some infrastructures of the Isabel II Canal (dams, azudes, beacons, channels), piezas fundamentales en la historia del abastecimiento de agua a la ciudad de Madrid a lo largo de la Historia.
