Probably one of the most beautiful hikes around in the central alpujarras between capileira and orgiva. this is a perfect day trip and a one way trip taking the bus from orgiva to capileira and walking back. The trails covers one of the most amazing walks along the original acequias of the alpujarras. the forests and the nature around rio chico are one of the best kept secrets on this side of the sierra nevada. not many people know about that region. its natural beauty is wothwhile the trip. you can drive all the way up to the puente palo and back to canar/origiva also but then you will miss the trail down the rio chico which leads to one of the oldest pine forest on this side. the valle rio chico again is very spectacular with deep drops and rocks. i got in to late so i had to walk the last 3-4 km with flashlight which is sure adventereous - considering the steepness when taking the last acequia to soportujar. If you drop into the only taberna in soportujar be prepared to join in for beer and talk about football :)
