Definitely a long-ish hike to the bottom of the mountain. Went to the top of Sacromonte twice - the first on a free guided tour in the evening and saw the sunset, the second with friends in early afternoon. Both times was a fantastic view. Cool to see the graffiti and look at the houses. An interesting cultural experience and more "real" Spain because there are not so many tourists around. You have a great view of Alhambra and if you make it to the top where the church is, you can walk around to the back of the church and see the Sierra Nevadas.
