This route commences from the Plaza del Ingenio, situated 290 metres above sea level (30 S 0420462/ UTM 4072074).
At the entrance to the Cuesta del Apero, you´ll find a track that goes down eastwards, this takes us to the Higueron riverbed and is approximately 400 metres.
Once at the riverbed we continue north, (left) and walk for 1000 metres until we reach the Pozo Batán, an old Arabic water deposit used to irrigate the local area. 300 mtrs after this point and on the right hand side, next to a sign you´ll see an ascending track which takes us to the highest levels of the Chillar ridge, passing the highest point of the walk at 459 m above sea level. From here we can see Nerja and a good part of the Natural Park.
At the highest point of the walk ( 30S0421046/UTM4073077), and with 2.4kms already walked we find a fork in the track, we must turn left here, descending and taking us to the Barranco del Agujero. After this point we continue to descend until reaching the Higueron riverbed. Once in said riverbed we can see the remains of what once was a dam, known by the locals as “ The old well” (El pozo viejo).
To return we take the riverbed downstream until arriving at the Pozo Batán and continue our steps until we reach our departure point in Frigiliana.
