Routes, Maps & Inspiration for Self Guided Walking & Hiking in Spain's Sierra Nevada
N.B This is an interactive map that opens up in new window
There is a short, steep climb on good tracks after leaving Cebedilla, before dropping down to the valley bottom and following the path as it winds its way up and alongside the river. A short rise to the acequia before Cortijo Tomas where you turn left and follow the irrigation channel towards the river. A gradually ascending line above the channel by-pass some awkward vegetation.
Cross the river and follow the track as it passes through a cliff barrier. There is a short section where a cable assists progress. The path continues in glorious scenery on the western side of the valley, high above the river. At the old Hydro station follow the path down to join the main path you ascended on, some 15 minutes way from Cebedilla start point.
The scenery is wild and mostly accompanied by the rushing waters of the river. There are some short, steep gradients involved.
The walk can be extended 3hrs by starting and finishing in the village of Capileira, ascending the east bank of the Rio Poqueira and descending the west.
