Pay attention to the trail! When I read 3 mile easy loop, I expected to hike for about 2 hours with picture taking. I stop a lot, but my pace is usually pretty good. 2 hours was not the case. 4-5 hours later, I rolled into town in the dark and in the fog, drenched in sweat and bleeding. I was following the trail, and after circumventing what a cow blocking the gate, I missed the turn and hiked an extra ways out. By the time I realized I had missed it, I decided to follow the extended loop back to the original trail as it looked like it would be easier. Huge mistake. Low light, low visibility (due to fog), rain, and a lot of slippery rocks to climb over. I regretted my decision once I found myself climbing over boulders and other jagged rocks with what might have been cactus in either side. It was almost impossible to find the trail once I stepped off it. Almost as soon as I found the trail, I was face to face with a glowing set of eyes, probablly a cow, but I wasnt gonna risk it. I backed up and tripped over some rocks going around and lost the trail for a while. So, pay attention to the trail and be smart. It's a tough trail when you mess up. So, I did not do any planning. Just decided I would go for a hike. I do not recommend hiking this trail late or in low visibility. It is easy to lose the trail at the far points. Thank goodness I had the alltrails app pro version. Old school maps would work as well, but the all trails maps and gps made it alot easier to get back. I had a headlamp, but I was not prepared to camp. In a way, this is a note to my complacency. I have become accustomed to easy well marked trails, and have not been taking the proper precautions. If my phone had died, it would have been a long, cold, wet night.

Benaocaz is in Cadiz, not in Caceres.
