This hike starts from the Puerto de la Morcuera at 1,800 meter and takes us without too much effort to above 2,100 meter. It is a typical high mountain hike: little vegetation, rocky and the last part over a ridge, thanks to which we have a wide view in all directions during the hike. From the Col of the Najarra and the Bailanderos we have a wide view over the Parque Regional de la Cuenca Alta de Manzanares with the Pedriza and the reservoir of Santillana.
- From the car park (1) we walk a small stretch further uphill towards the Puerto de la Morcuera (2).
- On this pass we turn left onto a trail that is closed with a snow fence through which we can go via a gate.
- From here we just follow the white-yellow marking of this trail. Since we walk most of the time on a crest, it is impossible to lose track here.
- Once on the Bailanderos (3), on the highest point of the route, we follow the trail back to the Puerto de la Morcuera and the car park.
