The walk starts in the area of Valdegalindo, south of Tordesillas, in the heart of the countryside of Castilla-León. The route goes through vineyards, unirrigated fields and a grove of Stone Pines.

In the wood you can hear the songs of the Short-toed Treecreeper, the Great Spotted Woodpecker and the Coal Tit. In some areas the Stone Pine wood is combined with, and overtaken by, Cork Oaks and Holm Oaks, diversifying the bird species that can be seen: the Mistle Thrush, Subalpine Warbler, Azure-winged Magpie, Wood Lark, Common Scops Owl and European Nightjar are all present.

 The route presents the opportunity to see another type of habitat: the vineyard, typical ecosystem of species such as the Eurasian Tree Sparrow, the Greater Short-toed Lark or the European Greenfinch.

In the final part of the route we can see several abandoned gravel deposits which, if the rains have filled them, make observing species such as Grey Herons or Mallards easy.

 Along the whole route it is worth looking up to the sky to identify species of birds of prey such as Booted Eagles or Kites.
