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... More

Very nice walk, first half is in the canyon and some of it involves hanging on steel handles to get around protruding bits of wall or crawling on all fours. Not particularly challenging for most physically abled people - dont need to be fit. Second half of the walk is up in to the mountains and then down the other... More

Having hiked the breathtaking and excruciating Hanakapia'i trail in Kaua'i (Hawai'i) we thought we'd give Los Cahorros a try. Not having seen any pictures on the internet beforehand, we didn't know what to expect, but we were excited about the hanging bridges. 1) First of all, the hanging bridges are a joke, except for the third one, which is the...

My husband and I, both in our mid fifties and not too fit decided to do this walk and boy were we happy we did. We down loaded a map of a circular walk which took us through the canyon. The scenery was stunning, the views from the top fabulous. We stopped at a small waterfall and had a paddle,... More

We wanted to see some of the Sierra Nevada, and to go for a nice walk in the mountains. Got recommended this place from our hostel. And we loved it! A very beautiful canyon, beautiful mountains, very nice walk. ( you need decent shoes, and have to be able to walk on uneven surface, over suspension bridges, and bring some... More

If you are a walker you MUST do this walk. It's so interesting and diversified. I would suggest though downloading the route from the Trek Sierra Nevada website, it's invaluable. Use walking shoes. we are just retirement age and do walk and found it no problem, however if you are not nimble and are a bit big, don't bother. At... More

We had a fabulous day doing this walk. Scenery was stunning. Lots of fun with the overhangs and the three rope bridges. Highly recommended

You can catch bus 183 from Granada to Monachil (last bus stop), walk through town, up the hill to begin this trail (sign posted - keep stream on your right going through the town). The hanging bridges are great. The lower trail is very scenic. There's some tight squeezes to crawl or crouch through. Handles on the rocks to hang... More

The hanging bridges were exciting to cross and it was really great inching our way along the ledge by the watercourse. On the way back there was a spectacular waterfall bursting out of the mountain above us.
