Private ownership but allowed to use freely by anyone. Please lock the gate when entering and leaving. Don't let dogs run freely. No campfires and no camping.

Approach

65 km from Salamanca. Take the A66 highway heading to Béjar. 50 km later, take exit 396 to Cabeza de Béjar and from there to Santibáñez. Pass the town and continue towards El Guijo de Ávila. You can park at the small pass next to the gate that gives way to the crag.
