The trails are simple and the views are unbelievable. The trail by the river is just wonderful. There is about 6 to 7 hours of fun just to see all of it if you take your time. I absolutely recommend it to everybody passin' by Granada.

A nice side trip from Granada. There are a few different options. We took the lower path down towards the river. Good walking shoes needed and there are some rope bridges to traverse. But it is worth it for the stunning views. Lower down you can cool off your feet off in the water.

Just to wanted to set expectations as we were pretty unprepared and nearly warned off the walk by uber keen German hikers who shook their heads at out attire. We did the full loop of this canyon and hill hike and absolutely loved it. I was in shorts, t-shirt and espadrilles, my wife in dress and flip flops and the... More

Well worth walking through the national park, especially when the weather is not too hot. There are two bars/cafes on the route so take in Spain's winter sun and enjoy the views.

Monachil is a wonderful small place outside of Granada. It's a 30-40 bus ride but it's amazing. There are loads of great view points, places to climb, places to walk and relax. There's a cool Indiana Jones style rope bridge to cross and it's just awesome. It's great for a pic nic, adventure and place to relax. Check it out!

Lovely walk with added fun. Watch out if it is very hot you can do shorter version avoiding the higher, hotter paths.

I enjoyed Los Cahorros very much. It's a beautiful canyon, ideal for people who love hiking or who love photography. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see something different when in or around Granada.

I won't go into the walk details as others have far more eloquently than I can. All I'll say its worth the effort although maybe not quite as spectacular or hair raising as I thought it would be from other reviews. We were also very disappointed with the amount of graffiti on some of the rocks and bridges and thought... More

This off-the-beaten track hike, just outside of Granada was beautiful and memorable in mostly good ways. The gorge walk was lovely and in areas exciting as we held onto handles attached to the rock and dangled over the water below. The hanging bridges were fun and the steep climb through the countryside along olive groves and cherry orchards was a... More

Great Sunday afternoon walk to do with the family. Spectular views, hair-raising hanging bridges over the gorge and beautiful scented herbs along the way. The walk was fairly busy at the start but once you walked for a while, you soon had peace and quiet and could enjoy the scenery. The children loved swimming/paddling in the river - there was...
