The road from the ruins descends into a valley where a large meadow full of wildfires and a campsite allows a choice of roots. Straight ahead, a trail heads up a short valley (with interesting side valley of tall cliffs), connecting to a long unused path/road at the pass. This road appears to be centuries old, continuing west to a the lowest pass on this very long ridge extending southward from Santa Rosa. Beyond this pass is Taja de Delores and the El Cubu active mine (but with possible access towards Guanajuato. HOWEVER, this loop trail does not head up this valley BUT INSTEAD turn due east from the meadow following a creek to the main valley running south of Presa de Peralillo.
