Although the road flanking the base of the Volcano & aacute; n Birigoyo, there is a path to climb this peak by its east side and lower it in address & oacute; South n through another Volc & aacute;. N attached to the front called The Barquita

To access the trailhead, from the C-830, the ravine of Los Sauces, rises, & ntilde; Alizada, an asphalted road that leads to the place from which we began the march, before reaching the information offices & oacute; n, the track crosses the ravine of water


On the path can distinguish three phases. First, from an elevation of about 450 meters, on the south side of Water Canyon from the parking lot all & iacute; there, then going for a short t & uacute; nel. We passed through a magnetic & iacute;. Tists laurel forests

A little m & aacute; s half an hour in a place spread, m & aacute; s horizontal, by a path which turns eastward, we climb in minutes to a lookout est & aacute; on Espig & oacute; n Crossed, which perfectly much of the environment can be seen, surpassing the Green Sea cups of TREES, as & iacute; as the immense walls that serve as bed and shelter; must tener caution & oacute; n as it has a steep, narrow and at the edge of a cliff, but has rails


Follow the track half an hour m & aacute; s. The second part of the trail begins at this point, crossing a wooden bridge over said cliff, at a height of about 850 meters, continue to rise.

A third, from about 1100 meters, we carry & aacute; to those of Marcos and the Lambs Lambs Canyon. So here & iacute ;, two hours. We spend one second wooden bridge before entering the ravine; the other side we see the continuation & oacute; n. the sidewalk

Then, just before a jump cuts off the runway, the trail heads north and then west and down the ravine again in about 15 minutes m & aacute; s; front, south, contin & uacute; a rising and shortly after & eacute; s we follow some steps and return to earth in about 8 minutes ravine m & aacute; s; we followthe ravine 3 or 4 minutes m & aacute; s, with a marked trail and see a path that goes across North; soon found a bifurcation & oacute; n: we take the path that continues to rise in that direction & oacute; n


In a few meters to go down the ravine to the west, through which passes across the path, and turning to the west we see a path by which we climbed to the headwaters of lambs in a few minutes. This STILL last part, since we took the second bridge, you can do in about 45 minutes


Once the sources of lambs can be lowered, to a t & uacute; nel where it crosses the channel & nbsp; sources of Mark, in about 15 minutes m & aacute;. s
