It may well be, but here is one from last year. It's done by a guy with his own camino website and LOTS of great information, so you might also want to check that out.Hi, is this map still up to date in 2016? thank you! Teresa
Thank you so much for your quick reply! I am coming to Madrid to look at high schools for our language immersion students here in Brooklyn, and will hope to walk a just a piece of the Camino, Cercedilla to Segovia on a February weekend, if the weather is temporate. I know that sounds nuts, but our Camino last year with my son, plays big in my heart!It may well be, but here is one from last year.

Both the original link and the wikiloc link are tracks for GPS devices. However the first one is "gpx" and I don't know what that means, other than to know that I like gps.
If you read Spanish, here is a lot of information on the Camino de Madrid, all of which is recent. http://www.rayyrosa.com/caminodemadrid.htm
These are very helpful, thank you Annie! TeresaA few more maps and lists I found useful.
Sorry the one list is cut off, but you should be able to figure out the names of the villages if you consult the map.
Annie, you are a wealth of terrific information and this is very helpful! TeresaHere is another map of the Camino Madrid.
I have one or two more. I'll look for them today.
I have a few notes that might be helpful:
Honestly, there are only two place that you might get confused.
The worst, for me, is right past Valdestillas (see photo of sign).
You will walk all the way through the village to the end.
You will turn RIGHT, go past the rail station and over a bridge.
THEN PAY ATTENTION.
If you look straight ahead across the highway, there is a yellow flecha that indicates a path into the forest.
DO NOT GO INTO THE FOREST. It will take you miles out of your way and you'll have to double back.
We followed that arrow - what a mess.
Instead, you will turn LEFT and walk along the highway to Puente Duero.
At the TOP of the hill after Cercidilla, after you've climbed through the beauty,
you reach a place where it makes sense to stop and rest.
There is a monument there to Jose Covelo.
There is a good fountain here, but you can't see it.
You will be at a "Y" in the road.
If you are going to Valsain you will continue on down to the left.
But the fountain is on the road to the RIGHT just a few yards.
So, you can fill up, then come back to the summit and continue down.
After Santervas, there are two clearly marked choices; to Melgar to the left up a dirt track and a shorter route to Arenillas along the road, the so-called "official" route. Do not walk on the levy. Look closely to the left of the levy and you will find a path through the bottomland
Except for these places, the Madrid route was very easy to follow, very clearly marked.
I did not do the stage into Sahagun, which I understand could be confusing.
I will do it this year.
I will post photos
Teresa, it doesn't sound nuts to me, but that's probably because that's exactly what I did one Saturday in February a few years ago. If you do that, though, I would take the train out to Cercedilla the night before so that you can get up and go early in the morning. I stayed in the pension Aribel Longinos which is a stone's throw from the train station and right on the Camino. By leaving early, I was able to get to Segovia around 1 pm and spend a few hours there before getting that 28 minute (!!!!) train back to Madrid.Thank you so much for your quick reply!
