The route begins in the village of Vinuela
on the C-335, 14 kilometres to the north of Velez-Malaga. The next stop is reached by following the C-335 for a further 4
kilometres before turning right to take a 5 kilometre road to Alcaucin.
To reach the third stop on the route we return to the C-335 travelling north
until the bridge of Puente de Don Miguel where the road branches left on the C-340 to Periana
, a distance of 13 kilometres from Alcaucin.
After leaving Periana we continue on the C-340 until taking a road on the
right to Alfarnate which is 15 kilometres from the last stop and the most
northerly village of Axarquia and the Route of Oil and Mountains. The road to Alfarnate has some of the most spectacular views
in Axarquia, rising with the small hamlet of Guaro and Mount Maroma on the right, taking in
Lake Vinuela and stretching
down to the long coastline. Just 3 kilometres from Alfarnate is the village of Alfarnatejo.
The route continues from here with a return to the C-340 travelling
alongside the Sabar River for 7 kilometres. At the T-junction with the C-340 we turn right and continue for another 8
kilometres to Riogordo in the valley of the Cueva River.
A return to Velez-Malaga is possible via a choice of roads, or to Malaga along the mountain road C-345 or N-321 passing through Casabermeja.
