Stage 3 San Muñoz - Alba de Yeltes
The endless landscape
Today's stage is like the previous one, with the added difficulty that intermediate villages, where you can find support, are even further away from the way. Luís Quintales said this stage was the wildest of the Torres Way, so get ready for over 7 hours of walking without seeing a soul. Beyond the endless landscape, there are two obstacles to overcome: the Cabrillas stream and the Yeltes River. If you take the way during a rainy season, you are bound to have to walk in water to cross these courses. Should crossing be impossible, in the first case there is a bridge to the north-west, but the best thing is to turn back and head for the village of Cabrillas, where you will be able to recover your spirits for the second part of the stage. In the second case, it is best to walk about 1 km to the left, along the river, where you will find a bridge. Either of these options will add several kilometres to the journey, and could easily add up to 30km of walking.
