This is a simple route from the bus stop in Lajares using the PR FV-1, a published walking route.
Montaña de la Mareta, 193m
Shortly after leaving the main road (FV-10) this hill appears on the right. Like many a hill in Ireland it dominates its surroundings even though it isn't particularly high.

The route

The initial route is along a barranco. This is a stream bed which in the prevailing climate is usually dry. It is also flat unlike stream beds in Ireland which are generally more V shaped.
Barranco del Jable o la Cañada Mellián -- usually dry and driveable.

The route has sporadic signs and some amenities such as an unexpectedly magnificent shelter at the col near Montana del Corraletes.
Shelter in the col - shelter against the sun that is.

After said col we took a deviation up Montaña del Fraile, a small hill of 156m to the south of the route.

Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 2h 12m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
