1. Initiation Stage:
Access Starting point: The roads A-384, from the A-92 up to the level of Antequera, and the A-357 which leads to Málaga via Carratraca.
Starting point:Tthe southeast area of Campillos, where Dr. Óscar Fernández and Baltasar Peña streets meet.
Enjoy the walk safely: There are a couple of fords across Arroyos del Boquerón and Capitán, which do not pose a serious obstacle, given their meagre fl ow. Another story is the level crossing lacking automated barriers across the Málaga-Seville train line. The section of the railroad tracks is completely straight, but in case of low visibility, it is advisable to look for an overpass towards the west which means a detour of about two kilometres.
Follow the A-7286 as it passes over the railroad line and then follow the track which will take you back to the other side of the level crossing. On the other hand, you will cross the A-7286 road just after the level crossing and, paradoxically, it is the same road you will be walking along for about two kilometres and a half until reaching the track to Pinares de Rebolo. In all these above-mentioned cases you should take extra precautions. There is not a single drinking water supply point during the whole stage, which, as you know, is quite long.
2. Completion of Stage:
Access to finish point: from Málaga the MA - 5403 road connecting Ardales with Estación del Chorro. Then follow the directions for the reservoirs (Pantanos) along a service road. There is an access from Campillos off the A-357 along another reservoirs service road, the A-7286.
Finish point: Guadalhorce and Guadalteba reservoirs just before the shared dam.
Possible "escape routes":The A-7286 road that you cross at km 7.5 takes you to Campillos in a few kilometres to the right. Another easily identified point is the junction of the A-357 with the road mentioned earlier (as it makes a semi-circle which ends here). This point is reached when you cross the Arroyo del Capitán, near a farmhouse. Then, as you wander through the pine wood, there is always a tarmac road you can reach by walking westwards.
No return point: From the pine forest of the hill Cerro de La Laguna de Panza onwards, turning back is not a good
idea. It is best to continue even though there is a hard ascent followed by a long descent.
Connections to other footpaths and trails: There is a circular walk (not sign-posted) which enables you to get to know all of the sites of the Natural Reserve of the Lagunas de Campillos, and it coincides in part with the GR.In terms of traditional public roads, up to Cortijo de Cerero (km 5) you will be walking along the old Camino de Campillos to Antequera, eastward.
The section leading south continues and connects later with Realenga de Carratraca, which leads up to Cortijo de Capacete (km 8.3). Earlier on, at the Laguna de Camuñas, there is a junction with the Cañada Real de Granada coming from the southwest, which then continues separately. From the point where you cross Arroyo del Boquerón until arriving at Arroyo del Capitán, the path is called Camino a Cerro Prieto.
