Peñalara - day out from Madrid Jul 04, 2010
If you are like me and need a day out in the country when taking a city break, this is an ideal day out from Madrid.

The Renfe Cercanias should be used (http://www.renfe.com/viajeros/cercanias/madrid/mapa_zonas_madrid.html) Take route C8 to its terminus at Cercedilla and change there to the C9 line for Los Cotos. (Both covered by one ticket from Madrid).

An entrance to the natural park is just above the station and there is an information office (Casa del Parque} near this entrance, where you can get information about walks (including good advice on suitability for the disadvantaged) in English from the very helpful receptionists.

Particularly recommended is route 3 to the Gran Laguna de Peñalara - what in Scotland would be called a Coire Loch.
