Berzalejo Recreational Area

It has numerous wooden and stone tables that on many occasions fall short of receiving visitors who come to this pleasant space. As soon as the good weather arrives, the celebrations of children’s birthday parties and meals with friends in the open air begin. It is a cool and shady space.

El Berzalejo is a repopulated pine forest in which the most striking are the twisted shapes of the pines. It is difficult to find a straight one and some, almost lying down, like the palm trees on the shore of the paradisiacal beaches, but in a rustic version, they delight the little ones.

It also has swings, a fountain and exercise equipment for adults. There´s no cafetería or shop nearby, so whatever you want to eat or drink you should buy first in Hoyo de Manzanares.

It is accessed from the M618, halfway between Torrelodones and Hoyo de Manzanares, on the left side of the road.

Watch out! We must respect the traffic regulations to enter and exit, going as necessary to the Las Colinas roundabout to turn around to be able to access correctly without endangering ourselves or other drivers.

As soon as we leave the road we will see a space reserved for car parking and to access the pine forest we will have to push a metal door, which serves only to delimit the space.

From here we have beautiful views of the Sierra de Hoyo and just two kilometers away is the protected Wetland of the Charca de Los Camorchos, which is a beautiful walk suitable for all ages with which to complete a perfect day.

Remember, it is important to carry garbage bags and deposit them in the outer containers to leave everything collected when you leave.
