The green trail starts in the western side of the Cidacos Park, where a paved path parallel to the Cidacos River starts towards the highway. Before passing under the N-232 road and the A-68 highway, there is a stretch shared with the cars, that is used to access the orchards and estates of the area. This stretch ends in a small picnic area where you can find the remains of an aqueduct that brought water from La Hez Mountains to the Roman city of Calagurris. From here, the trail runs parallel to the LR-134 road. In this stretch it is important to pay attention to the great number of path crossings, appropriately marked, that cross it. The trail moves slowly away from the road, following the Yasa del Arco, and after a long straight stretch it crosses over a bridge and it approaches the LR-282 road. After about 6 km of green trail, you will reach a picnic area with a fountain, where you will find the old train stop of the Livillos River. The path continues parallel to the LR-282 road. After 4 km, before entering Autol, cross the road and continue on a stretch shared with cars that runs through an industrial park but does not enter the town. You will reach the picnic area of the old station of Autol, where you will find another fountain. After this area, the path passes next to the pools of the wastewater treatment plant of Autol and goes into the Gollizo Tunnel, 575 metres long and artificially illuminated. The exit of the tunnel coincides with the crossing over the road of Autol to Quel (LR-115) and there is again a stretch shared with vehicles, that runs next to the orchards of the Cidacos river bed. At the entrance of Quel, the trail turns left and crosses the town by a promenade next to the river. After leaving the pools behind, return to the original path of the old trail that comes from the Quel and that goes through the Cidacos meadow to Arnedo. To avoid the urban area of this town, after passing behind a gas station at the entrance of Arnedo, the trail turns abruptly left and follows the orchard access paths. On this path you will reach the bridge of the LR-123 road that goes from Arnedo to Villarroya. Pass under it and you will arrive at the beginning of the Cidacos Park.
