We did this one from San Bartolomé as we didn't want a big climb at the end. 2/3 of the trail is on unmade road which is dusty and throws up a lot of glare. There is very little shade. Whilst you cover the miles quickly, the road is tedious and seems to go on for ever. In its favour, the navigation is easy and I can imagine it suiting a group of friends who want a longish hike whilst chatting and not having to pay attention to route finding. This route is rated as a top trail in more than one publication, but whilst we enjoyed our day out there are more scenic trails from Tejeda.
