    The Route of the Offices begins next to the entrance roundabout to the village of Pinilla del Valle, Where, very close to the route information panel, we will be able to admire some useful employees in the old forge and the foal of herrar. Very close are the remains of the Calera where the heat needed for construction was obtained. From this point on, the route runs parallel to the Creek of the Pits, waterway that we crossed later by a bridge. Shortly after, we'll cross the M-6o4 road through an old tunnel.

    Following the beacons, and ascending by the creekbed of the Hoyos, we will reach the Navazo mill today restored and conditioned by the City Council, and that well deserves a visit to get to know the old craft of millers.

    At the post-mill fork, we will turn right and get to the place where the darkier was located, where we
    we find an explanatory panel on traditional shingle making. The route then enters a beautiful mingle, where some signs in the trees will tell us the direction to follow. Another new panel will explain the work of the forestry agent.

    The journey continues on a track (the path of the Marotera) and after a big turn to the left, again he enters the forest, descending to the majada, an old shepherd's hut. The next stop we'll make it in the coal pit and we'll find a comma, the coal is made.

    After going back on the path of the handbag and enjoying great views, we'll meet the last panel, next to the dry wall, from where we'll get back to the mill, continuing the way back.

    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.
