This “grandfather” of the forests of the Sierra del Agua is a magnificent example of Corsican pine or black pine (Pinus nigra) that could be about 500 years old. Its trunk has a perimeter of around 5 m. It takes 3 people to fully embrace it. Its height is about 25 m. It has a huge side branch whose dimensions alone dwarf many other good specimens of pine around.

    Pino Gordo del Toril

    The environment in which pine is has a truly magical touch. It is a sinkhole (karst depression) at 1500 m altitude, near the peak of the Gallinero (1629 m). Any of the routes into pine Gordo is itself an excellent trip itself. Go to the Pino Gordo. Sit under its shadow. Embrace it. Think about all the historical events that have occurred while this fantastic living being already was there! Protect it. Enjoy it. Love it!The river Mundo walking holidays

    All routes proposed here are excellently marked by the network of trails Verdenace http://www.senderosverdenace.com/es

    Option 1: From Cañada del Provencio (village), (4 km long, 380 m high)

    Cañada del Provencio (Molinicos)

    The route starts from the village of Cañada del Provenci. An indication panel on the road in the top of the village marks the beginning. It goes down a path that is leaving soon to enter a path that goes through ancient abandoned  orchards. Then we reach “El Estrecho” where the water supply that fed the village was made. There the path crosses the main runway and continue along the ravine on a path in its final section is very steep. Eventually you will reach clearing meadows, and nearby is the pine.   Opcition 2: From the Toril (2,3 km long, 250 m high)

    Sendero que conduce al Pino Gordo, cerca del Gallinero (1630m)

    The starting point is on the road from Riopar to Batán del Puerto (km 187). First of all we must cross Endrinales river. In winter, it is not uncommon to cross the river walking on his bed completely frozen. We head for a lovely ravine that scenario seems a fairy tale. Finally he goes to a small path that will leave immediately and continue along a beautiful path that runs lined with boulders and thorns. If it is foggy the path has a mysterious look. Opctio 3: From Riópar (7,5 km long, 644 m high)

    El Malojar

    It is the longest option. First you have to climb to Manojal. Once you’ll reach the the abandoned farmhouse of Manojal, the hardest part of the route will be finished and then you’ll move forward through a flat valley rich in meadows and forests of black pine. The end of the path is the same as option 2. The river Mundo walking holidays
