Took bus 183 from Granada to monachil centre Only took 20 mins. Followed the road to a bridge and crossed over the river. We followed the river up the valley - not the most pleasant of walks very overgrown and many derelict electro buildings. Was beginning to wonder why we had chosen to do the walk when we came across... More

We drove here from Malaga in early morning. After parking the car and started to walk the trek, we were the only 2 person around. Los Cahorros is indigenous to Monachil. Residents living in the town were born and grew up with it. That's why when we got lost, we merely inquired anyone and discovered the way eventually. There were... More

This trek is well worth the effort but you do need to go well prepared with suitable footwear and drinks. It was very hot the day we visited and we lost time due to bad signposting. After Monachil we missed signs as they were wooden painted ones at the side of the road. Using satnav we knew we were in... More

I visited Los Cahorros at the beginning of July 2016. I took the bus (181) from Granada to Monachil which took just over 30 minutes and was €1.50 each way (note that on a Sunday there is a limited service so make sure you check the timetable before travel.) The beginning of the trail is about a 30 minute walk... More

We wanted somewhere to walk whilst in Spain, and felt after looking at the pictures that this would be ideal, once we got through Granada, and onto the mountain road, the drive up was scenic. We parked at the top and walked down, stopping at the little bar for a quick drink before heading off to visit the gorge. Once... More

Okay, we drove up here from Granada after reading the TA reviews. Yes, it is worth the trip although you need to be aware of a few things. You can deive right down to the restaurant but it is deceiving. You need to turn right off the highway just out of town when you see a red restaurant sign -... More

We walked the eight kilometer round which began with the passage in the gorge. The remaining half up in the Hill was quite hot and dry. But the gorge was exciting and great fun.

Park in the restaurant and then take the path from just outside the restaurant gate. Within ten minutes you're in the gorge with bridges, paths and pools everywhere. Great fun, and worth the trip.

Fun little adventure 20 mins from downtown Granada. The last part of the drive is on a dirt road. Several people parked at the beginning of the road and walked in. Keep going! There is a nice restaurant and plenty of parking at the end of the road. Parking is 5 euros or if u have a drink and something... More
