The local yellow-and-white waymarked circular walk of Bérchules called the ´Junta de los Ríos´ has been changed into a green-and-white waymarked linear walk up into the Sierra. It follows the Camino a Lanteira for 9,5 kilometres up to Cortijo los Poyos - or Cortijo de los Pollos - and the same way back to the village. The marker posts are placed only thinking about walking in one direction. Following the green-and-white waymarks you miss out the lovely part along the irrigation channel, the ´acequia nueva´. We therefore removed the old brochure of the local walks from our website. As far as we know a new brochure has not been developed. We offer our guests both the old and new version of the Junta de los Ríos walk with our own detailed descriptions.
PS of 15 March 2009:
The local walk Junta de los Ríos is now walk six in the new guidebook, see our post on the news of this publication.
Information on this walk and the GPS track can be found on the website of the Mancomunidad Alpujarra Turistíca.
