Beautiful circuit with a bit of everything! There is an option to make a detour up to the Cruz Pinto at the top of the ascent out of the river gorge. This would add about 2k to the marked route. We returned by following the acequia along the valley bottom which meant an occasional scramble but you may prefer just to follow the river bed lower down. (The river was in flood when we did the walk)
Keep your eyes open for ibex on the slopes of the gorge - we saw a family of four near the end.
