La Chorrera de San Mamés
Point of departure:
Iglesia de San Mamés o Navarredonda
Mid-level route, the unevenness of the climb is widely rewarded as you contemplate this spectacular waterfall that forms the stream of the Jet. A shorter option would be to make it round trip from San Mamés.
Path that leads us to one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the community of Madrid. The option we propose is a circular route that in addition to the Chorrera, allows us to visit the pretty village of Navarredonda and return to the beginning through a magnificent oak tree.
We start the route in the valuable Church of San Mamés, one of the architectural jewels of the Sierra Norte, dating back to the 12th century. Part a road in front of the Church, where we see a poster of the artisanal dairy Santo Mamés, which we go. The cheese shop well deserves a stop to supply us with a good artisan cheese of pure goat's milk from Guadarrama and alpine cow, and step to see how they produced it
Last cheese factory the road begins to climb more clearly, We see around some stains from oak. After a couple of riots, We trace the slope of the Hill of the Tejoneras, and we access to the small and deep valley which forms the running Brook. Below we hear the sound produced by the flow of the stream.
The road heads to a leafy pine forest, after crossing it we continue along a path that, among rocks, San Blas, cantuesos and rose hips, It goes along the slope. We have heard the roar of the water coming from la chorrera and soon spotted it.
Chorrera of San Mamés is a spectacular waterfall of some 30 meters, forming the Jet stream and that culminates in a slide that shoots water up. It is considered the largest of the community of Madrid waterfall.
At this time we can choose to return for the same path or continue towards Navarredonda. If we choose to continue, the trail descends between oak stains by bushy terrain until we reach the alleys between stone walls that will lead us to Navarredonda.
We cross the village and enter an oak zone that thickens even thicken after crossing a road. Under the shade of the oaks the road converges with the M-634 road that leads us back to San Mamés.
