The circular begins in Firgas, at the Los Chorros junction. We start with some trails that end in a descent and end in the Las Madres ravine. Finally, it continues going up through Valsendero until practically reaching the top of Cuevas de Caballero.
After going down a very long path, we will arrive at the town of Artenara, where it is essential to recharge water and food for the return trip. Here we will go up the general Artenara road by bike towards Pinos de Gáldar. Where we will go down its well-known gravel mountain. Then we will tie with the descent of Fontanales, which ends right in this town. Another suitable place to buy water.
From Fontanales we will go up a path until we find the path of the Curvas del acero (curves of steel). Which will leave us again in the ravine of Las Madres. Now we will only have to go down a dirt track to finish climbing an old descent that will take us back to the starting point of the route.
