Pico de Peñalara
There are several ways to reach the peak of Peñalara, the highest peak of Sierra de Guadarrama, this route is in addition, the simplest. We depart from Puerto de Cotos and head to Collado de Dos Hermanas, taking there the road to Peñalara; it is interesting to see the trenches of the Spanish Civil War.
The descent to Valsain is hard, we could therefore return through Puerto de Cotos, an easier route.
