We did not have enough time to experience real Sierra Nevada and decided to spend one day exploring Los Cahorros. And I must say it was totally worth it: we were very lucky to have warm sunny day and spend about 7 hours trying the route of los Cahorros. Despite the fact that it is quite easy the views you...

This is a hidden gem for sure. We got the bus from Granada into a small village and walked to the route. The bus only comes every hour so be sure to time your hike around this. The walk itself is brilliant and easy for most people. The hanging bridges were my favourite and the gorge with the mini waterfall.... More

easy to reach, great outdoor walk, you need to be a little bit movable to manage some places, calm surroundings in a spectacular beautiful landscape

Brilliant day. Had a great family day out with 20 year old son. Great adventure took 2-3 hours nothing too strenuous but great fun. A great way to spend an afternoon.

This is a lovely hike easily reached within 15 min of Granada, suitable for families and young children. We parked at the higher parking by the restaurant although it is possible to park in the village as well. You can download a detailed pdf route map in English - and we did the full circular hike of around 7km, that... More

We recommend this hike, it's not so easy to find but worth it. Best to use GPS to find the parking spot close to it ( we parked in the village ). At the end of the path through the gorge the is a bridge where you can take a path up into the mountains for a good view around.... More

Went there on my own a couple of days ago. Usually I would prefer to go into the mountains with a group, but because of the amount of visitors it felt safe to walk there on your own. It is not always clear which direction to take due to roads splitting up, but if you stay near the river you... More

We started the walk from the village and followed the directions we found online. It was so much fun, especially the bridges and going through the rocks with little foot space. I wouldn't say this walk is suitable for young children or a family walk. We got lost as its not signposted very well and ended up walking and walking... More

We started this walk from upper Monachil and it ended up being 20km due to a couple of detours. Starting from lower Monachil (village) with no detours it is about 10km. If you are from the UK and like scrambles this is for you. It is more like via ferratta though the drops are 7 or 8 metres above the... More

Easy and cheap bus ride to Monachil, just check the schedule because there is a siesta break in the afternoon between 3 and 6pm. Not much signage to get there, but there were other tourists so we followed each other and figured it out. We loved the hike in the mountains, and even got to see a snake in the... More
