La Cumbre – Ibahernando road(Trujillo Plains SPA)
The PIOs described enable us to enjoy one of the other main areas of pseudo steppe in the district. It is open-country with pasture and cereal fields. Although from these sites it is not possible to access them, this area is crossed by the rivers Magasca, Magasquilla (a tributary of the former) and the Gibranzos. All are seasonal rivers, experiencing long dry periods, and all part of the Almonte watershed.
The main land use is livestock rearing: sheep and cattle, although there are areas of cereal production. It is an area ideal for species adapted to this pseudo steppe landscape.
2.- From Ibahernando take the road to Trujillo (CC-50) and after a little less than 2 kilometres take a left turn which is the road for La Cumbre.
2.- The third site is at 6.7 km from La Cumbre, at the edge of a ruined farmhouse. Here we can leave the car for a short period and walk a few metres to the south-west.
In addition we can take advantage of the routes that are marked in both La Cumbre (SL-CC 250 “The meander of the Gibranzos”) and Ibahernando (SL-CC 252 “Los Tesoritos”).
