Cerro de Santa Lucía

Hard to describe Hike with a mixture of Road, Trail and cross country Hiking. I used Steve’s GPS track as my guidance but soon after deviated and found my own way which may not even be better. Pretty much straightforward till the Farm House and then the challenging terrain starts. I was following the Fence-line and it was not so bad although attention is needed with loose rocks and boulders underneath high Grass. Was thinking several times of Rattlesnakes back in California but today the weather was not for their liking, besides I don’t even know if they exist in Spain. The Fence is high and sturdy and a hassle to find a way through. Impossible to climb over as well as very hard to get under. Eventually I found a weakness and could crawl under. More of the same terrain continues upwards, not really a likable terrain. Once I spotted the White Water-tank I went in a straight line for it. From here on it was a bit easier to follow some sort of trail to the first of three possible High-points. The Peakbagger App has the Highpoint at the Trig Pillar but all three points are within 2 feet as per Topomap. Made my way back to the Water Tank and followed a Road initially leading away from my ascent Route but eventually came back. Pay attention to my Turn as I missed it and went out further as needed and had to backtrack. This part was most enjoyable but I needed to get back to my ascent route and over the Fence once more. Since I liked my Fence-line Route so much lol…, I returned to it but found some Sheep trails which made it easier to follow. Eventually I was back at the Farm and could follow the Road out to my Car. A Slow and tedious Hike which takes time, patience, and a bit of an eye for good Route choosing.
