Fuente (drinking fountain) de los Cavadores has been lowed some tens of meters to the NE and the trail to Los Barrerones from near Pluviómetro has been remodeled. They have put many planks on the slopes and rocks on the verges of the trail, so in some places (as in Prado de las Pozas) sometimes the water doesn't run and forms mud in the trail.
