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...

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
