TORRELODONES – SAN LORENZO DEL ESCORIAL
It’s a 150 km track and starts in Torrelodones which is a Municipality of Madrid community about 30 km north west from the city center
I took the M618 direction Colmenar Viejo and then the M609 and M611 to end up in Rascafria.
From Rasacafria I followed the M604 direction Navacerrada Cruising the Cotos Pass which is about 1800 meters high and is a mountain pass in the Sierra de Guadarrama that divide the province of Madrid and Segovia, is a beautiful pass in the middle of nature with a lot of spot where to stop for enjoy the landscapes.
After Navacerrada I followed direction Guadarrama were I took the N VI direction Tablada and then I took a off road track that lead me to Peguerinos.
After Tablada before hit the gravel road there is a gate, it was open so I crossed it, doesn’t seems a private property but not sure if you allow to cross it. I had no problems at all during my trip.
After The village of Peguerinos I decided to visit the famous village of San Lorenzo del Escorial where you can visit the Royale Monastery called El Escorial which is also considered World heritage site from UNESCO.
This route is about 150 km long and is mostly on asphalt except for the 15km that goes from Tablada until Peguerinos
