    The route starts from the Plaza de la Picota in El Berrueco and continues along Calle Real and the M-131 road towards Torrelaguna until you take a detour to the right by a dirt road. The path passes next to the Cat Fountain, where you can see a watering hole carved in granite, and, a little further on, by the clean spot of El Berrueco. The route continues along a dirt road that borders the whole pasture. There are several junctions and forks of roads and you always have to choose the one on the right. The path goes up slightly, allowing you to contemplate the village of El Berrueco and the reservoir of El Atazar. The route leads to the M-127 road, parallel to which he enters the village.

    El Berrueco's buoy dehesa is listed as a Public Utility Mount. It is a communal property whose main function was to provide food to livestock used in traditional agricultural work. Selective logging and the planting of ash over the years have resulted in a fresneda adehesada with melojo oaks and junipers, bounded around its perimeter by a stone wall. Forest clearing has fostered the development of highly productive grasslands that continue to be exploited today. Ashes are pruned (smothing) completely when they reach a certain height and the outbreaks of the following years, in the form of long sticks, are cut to use as food for livestock at the end of summer, when the grass is already depleted. All these characteristics make the shocked fresnedas like this have a great natural and cultural interest.

    Hiking is an activity that carries certain risks if minimum safety guidelines are not followed, it is also a practice that is carried out in the natural environment so we must know some conservation standards that help us to make the least possible impact.
