My advice would be to download the map from treksierranevada.com and follow this, it is almost exactly 8km on the loop and much nicer than just going up and down the same way. The bridges are fun but not too exposed and there are good metal handholds and natural ones where you need them for passing through the gorge. There... More

Very easy route to follow on the way there but then most people turned back the way they came as there were no signposts to guide you. really amazing hanging rope bridges and waterfalls. quite spectacular and worth a visit

We struggled to find it as we set off with only a vague idea where it was - down a long and poorly marked narrow track. Kids loved it and we stopped and paddled in the mountain water. The suspended wooded bridges are unusual and definitely add an air of adventure to the trial. It was very hot 40 degrees... More

Whilst living in Granada I came here on a day trip and it was great fun. Just half an hour from the city and easily accessible by bus you can have a walk around and take a dip in the stream if you dare. A great way to spend a day.

A great walk, however, despite the excellent maps provided the trail is indistinct and unmarked so NOT easy to follow. Go early in the morning, take plenty of water, and sun protection. The various walks can take hours, especially if you get lost, or a reasonably short if you just go to the head of the trail and return.

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.
