La Toba - Casicas del río Segura - Anchuricas reservoir - Calar del Cobo
Time: Four hours.
From La Toba country estate, where there is a fountain, a recreational area
and a forest house, we shall walk on down the road and soon we shal see on our
right the Casicas del Río Segura on top of a rocky wall where we can accede
along a steep road.
Then we shall come back along the steep road again to the right, parallel to
the river Segura, which flows in this stretch very quick and savage to flow into
the green waters of the Anchuricas´ reservoir.
The reservoir is small but very beautiful. Soon the river will continue its
course and we shall follow it in order to reach a track to the left which leads to
a limestoned quarry after having watched the agriculture, cattle and housing area.
The track, after having passed some orchards, arrives at a bank which comes
down from the limestoned quarry and after crossing it starts to ascend winding
towards the top, an irregular, rocky, arid grey plain. The highest top is
southwards, 1,794 m. high.
