Cotos Forest Trail, Rascafría Featured in
If nature, tranquillity, and hiking sound tempting, you need to go to Rascafría. Cotos Forest Trail (Bosque de Cotos) is one of the most scenic routes in the area. Its length is about 8.5 km, and the route is as difficult, with a range of obstacles. As a bonus, you will get crystal waters of natural pools among green meadows.
The water temperature in them justifies their name, really cold and invigorating, but in the sultry July–August, it can be a true gift. The capital's inhabitants love this picturesque place, located in Valle del Paular.
The best time for trekking in Cotos Forest is from March to November. Take a train from Madrid to Cercedilla, and then another one to Cotos.
