Orcera - Segura de la Sierra - Navalcaballo's forest house
Time: Three hours.
This route has great historic, artistic and cultural interest, since it makes
its way through the beautiful historic towns of Segura de la Sierra and Orcera.
Leaving Orvera to Segura there is a local road 6 km. long which makes its way
through the mountain among the well-known olive trees in Jaén and
crossing an upheaval on the ground of about 300 m. Then we shall find a junction
which we shall take to the left towards Segura town with its castle on top.
After this compelling visit we must make our way to Siles, watching on our
right the impressive view of the river Trujala´s gorges, many metres below
us, where we can accede after walking on down numerous steep lanes.
Then we shall continue our walking tour, looking back from now on in order to
see the beautiful view of Segura town and its castle, until arriving at a
crossroads which we shall take to the right among pine trees until reaching another
crossroads which again we must take to the right. After arriving at a natural source
of rich water and opposite Navalcaballo´s forest house there is splendid
green pine grove.
