GR 114, 19km
The stage starts next to the Casa Cuartel Cañaveral hostel. A rest area was provided in its surroundings, for picnics under the shade of large eucalyptus trees (Eucalyptus spp.) And with spectacular views of the river Guadiana.
To reach this point, you have to take a detour between kilometres 10 and 11 on the HU-6400 Pomarao Road (Portugal), in the direction of El Granado (Huelva). The characteristics of the phase correspond to the mountainous area, at times with steep slopes and where typical sclerophyllic forest vegetation from the Mediterranean appears, as well as the riverside vegetation on the banks of the river Guadiana. During early daylight hours and at sunset you can see deer (Cervus elaphus) and wild boar (Sus scrofa).
The route runs along this stretch, until it reaches the port of La Laja, parallel to the river Guadiana, dotted with wooden trails over the bumpiest places. On a large area of uneven terrain, carved steps were placed on the ground and maintained by trunks. There are also boardwalks within the numerous canyons and streams that cross the road.
