A bus to Mijas from Fuengirola costs €1.55 each way and it is straight up the hill. 20 mins later you are at over 350m above sea level and the whole Costa Del Sol unravels before you. The hiking route are as 'serious' as the Lake District so you'll need sturdy shoes and occasional scrambling skills - this isn't a... More

There are plenty of ways going up to Pico de Mijas, all are a challenge some more technical than others, but all are worth it. The safest and easiest is the fire trail starting from Alhaurin el Grande.

Ideal marked and signposted treks through wooded and open hillside for all levels of of walkers. Spectacular views of miles of coastline and the surrounding landscape. And for those with a passion for flora and fauna there's an abundance of species to be observed. Look up and catch sight of eagles and kestrels hovering in the warm currents scanning the... More

I love walking here. All the walks are well signposted and easy to follow. There are different levels, times, distances and heights. The views are amazing and great for photos.

Visited July, the trails leading up the sierra de mijas are well marked, fairly easy for the person at least of average fitness levels. Views are breathtaking, be sure to pack plenty of water and a camera. Trail shoes would be ideal, rather than full on hiking boots . A distinctive smell of rosemary greets you near the higher slopes.... More

Honestly the subject says it all. Amazing. If you don't go you're seriously missing out. It can get very hot up there however and runners are recommended as you end up walking a lot.

We love hiking in Spanish Costa del Sol. This was our 3rd mountain hike and the first we actually could reach the top. The 2 before we went close but had to abandon due to high wind on open mountain side (in Casares and in Nerja). We used gps points on Google map in phone to navigate our route. From... More
