The views continue as you take in straight pines, two reservoirs, and finally the river itself. You´ll soon come to a recreation area (I love how prepared even the wild is in Spain - come visit! it seems to say. You can argue that it´s not really wild, but I say, let´s get people outside! And it´s really great to have convenient places to stop with Baby, not to mention trails that are well marked and maintained. It sure makes getting outside as a family easier!).
Anyway, after the recreation area, be sure to look up. You might just see someone swinging through the trees on the high ropes course! That´s a trip for another day, without Baby, though. Keep walking and you´ll be able to cross the river, continue and you´ll come to a natural fountain. If you´re not too tired and feeling adventurous, follow the road to the right and you´ll come to the ruins of an old tuberculosis hospital, The Royal Sanatorium of Guadarrama. It will add a climb and about an hour round trip to your excursion.
