I chose to start at El Puntarron restaurant ( there is a parking place just past the restaurant ). And set off from there, I decided on Cahorros... More

We visited Los Cahorros with our teenaged boys, who really were not very excited about going for a hike, But this is a hike like no other! First of all its not a difficult hike if you don't mind a bit of crawling, climbing or height on the rope bridges. In fact those things are exactly what made this hike... More

Lovely easy trek - take a bottle of water, good comfortable boots. Start via the river route and return via the road/farm route to see the views from both sides of Los Cahorros.

Do you like to crawl, it's for you. The children loved the walk along the water, but I had some difficultys with the narrow paths. We should have walked back the same way, but we got it wrong and took a much longer way high above the stream. It was a nice day out with the family after all.

A not to be missed walk in this marvellous area - if you can visit Sandra in the Tourist Office next to the Town Hall and Police Station in the Centre of the Village for maps and other information on gentler but equally fascinating walks.

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
