Back to normal after a bout of illness amongst the walk leaders. We are starting with an easy walk on tracks around Villanueva del Trabuco, there is a gradual uphill start but very easy tracks after that. It will take about 2.5 hours walking time. Meet at the swimming pool in Trabuco at 10:30, refreshments can be taken just over halfway around. Dog-friendly with a little bit of road walking.
