A lovely drive up through the Alpujarras towards Pitres brings you to the Taha de Pitres region. This is an area characterized by small white villages, steep sided gorges and abundant flora and fauna.
Start at the lower village of Fondales. Drop down through a couple of small villages, where time seemingly has stood still, to the Rio Trevelez and cross by an old bridge before zig zagging up the steep hillside above. Follow a gently rising forest track east with extensive views to the southern Sierra Nevada.
A steep drop down on an old mule track, cross a river and climb up to the village of Busquistar. A return is made via a high path above the gorge through Atalbeitar to Ferriorola and onwards to the start point at Fondales.
There are options for shorter versions as can be seen from the map
