GR 249. Stage 23: El Burgo - Ronda

RESPONSABILIDAD

El trabajo personal que acompaña a esta etapa se corresponde con la Responsabilidad. Representa la etapa más emocional y de mayor profundidad, para la que es necesario una cuestión de honestidad y estar dispuestos a querer revisarse a sí mismos. Para un proceso personal de la forma más adecuada se invita realizar su recorrido haciendo uso del silencio y así poder atender nuestro dialogo interior, invitándonos a esa conexión, que nos permite unificar cuerpo, mente, emoción y alcanzar la tranquilidad.

La intención que se pretende es reflexionar acerca de cuál ha sido nuestra parte de responsabilidad en las situaciones que nos rodean, cuál ha sido nuestra influencia y contribución para que haya sucedido, así como identificar los mecanismos para superarnos física, mental, emocionalmente y poder reproducirlos en otras áreas de nuestra vida. Lo que realmente se pretende es acallar la mente pensante para ver en lo que aparentemente se presenta como obstáculos y piedras que dificultan el camino, oportunidades para aprender y avanzar mejorando nuestras vidas, tomando decisiones que marquen un antes y un después, aparcando las quejas y el papel de víctimas para responsabilizarnos de aquello que nos corresponde, creando una diferencia, con la intención de adquirir la habilidad para decidir respuestas ante cualquier situación, implantar el éxito, la tranquilidad y la realización personal como estilo de vida.

Routes
Route On foot
Access -

1. Initiation Stage:

Access Starting point: From Alozaina and the Valle del Guadalhorce A-366, also from Ronda, Serrato or Ardales, as mentioned above.

Starting point: The square with the monument to Pasos Largos, at the intersection of the A-366 with roads to Serrato (MA - 5400) and Ardales (MA-5401).

Enjoy the walk safely:   During the short section of road, beware of the traffi c, above all to cross the bridge over the river. Upstream, when you need to ford the Río Turón, it is normally a dry riverbed.

However, this river course comes from the Sierra de las Nieves, and a storm can turn the ford into very dangerous one, although this happens rarely. The stage is hard because of its length, the steep slopes and the solitude of landscapes that it spans. As there are no water supply points, the advance planning of all the details of the trip is essential. The Lifa pass is a place with enough altitude where weather conditions can be extreme. It is not uncommon for it to snow here. The good news is that you walking along a track in good condition where there is no possibility of getting lost.

2. Completion of Stage:

Access to finish point:  The end of route coincides with the intersection of the A-397 to the Costa del Sol, A-374 to Seville, the A-367 to Malaga and the A-366 to Alozaina.

Finish point:  Ronda fairground, next to Pasarela de Libertad, in the north-eastern part of the town.

3. Alternatives:

Possible "escape  routes": There is no possibility of leaving the path other than on the tracks of the beginning or the end of the stage route, following them or retracing your steps.
 

No return point:  As soon as you reach the Cornicabral and you see Cortijo de Lifa which is inhabited, it is a better idea to
keep going. In case of very bad weather it is not advisable to continue uphill as weather conditions in Puerto de Lifa can be even more dire.

Connections to other footpaths and trails: The GR-243 Sierra de las Nieves, with a length of 94.28 km and adapted in 2009
by the Walking Association Pasos Largos and the Malaga Provincial Council, coincides with this stage of our GR. The description of its first stage (Ronda - El Burgo, of 23.49 km) is done in opposite direction to the itinerary of The Great Malaga Path. From El Burgo it heads south passing through Yunquera, with two alternative sections and ending in Istán.

In the same area where the stage starts, there are two well-advertised urban walks, the promenade El Paseo de la Acequia del Molino and El Puente Romano.

Once you are on the track leading to the dams, there are some options in the Natural Park. The Park likes the marly limestone hills that separate the Turón River from its tributary, Arroyo de la Fuensanta, running parallel in the s. Public Footpath of Puerto
de la Mujer (5.8 km) is on the dividing line of the mentioned watersheds. The Fuensanta walk (2.2 km) shares the same path with the previous walk up to the Puerto del Lobo and the third walk, which is also the longest (18 km), uses the track leading from the Puerto de la Mujer, coinciding with the GR-249 for almost 9 km, and leads down the track to la Fuensanta and to El Burgo again.The latter is highly recommended for mountain biking.

Moreover, the trail is one of the two old roads that connected El Burgo with Ronda, both leading through mountain passes well above 1,000 meters in height. Our road used to lead to Yunquera through El Puerto de la Mujer.

Finally, close to your destination point, Ronda inhabitants use roads which lead through the plains of Aguaya for long walks
towards the Pilar of Coca from the Venta Ramirón, to the area of the Guadalevín River. In fact, the famous race of the 101 kilometres organised by the Legion always passes through the Puerto Bilbao pass. In addition, it is described as PR-A71 (Ronda-Pilar de Coca), a trail of 9.1 kilometres certifi ed by the Andalucían Mountain Federation.

The last element in this network of routes is the Puerta Verde de Marbella, a walk equal in length to a marathon, which leads to Marbella from Ronda by the Pilar de Coca and crosses our GR at the Venta of Ramirón restaurant.
