Circular route from Las Dehesas de Cercedilla to la Peña del Águila via el Puerto de la Fuenfría. Under normal conditions a moderate difficulty level, but in this occasion we encountered a snowy landscape from the very start, with on the Peña del Águila about 50 cm of fresh snow, which made the ascent quite difficult. Snow raquets would have made it a lot easier, but the view on a white Sierra and pieces of art formed by the vegetation covered by a thick layer of ice and snow compensated the pain. Descent through snow was fun!

Route milestones: Las Dehesas de Cercedilla (1.340 m) - Puente de Enmedio (1.630 m) - Calzada Romana - Puerto de la Fuenfría (1.783 m) - Vereda del Infante - Collado de Marichiva (1.746 m)- Peña del Águila (2.007 m) - Collado de Cerromalejo (1.790 m) - Hospital de la Fuenfría (1.348 m) - Las Dehesas

- Note: GPS data are missing from top of Peña del Águila till about 350 m further southwards. However, trail is easy to find there (when there is no snow...)
