A contrasting hike through very varied scenery close to Granada. Lush green valleys fight with arid badlands for possession of the land and this gives interesting scenery and views

Route Description

From Collado Sevilla take a rough trail through arid badlands into the upper Barranco de Buho and hence to Las Arenales dry river valley. Aim directly ahead for the peak of Trevenque. At the far end of the valley turn right through a small pass and the walk contrasts instantly. Gone are the dry badlands and you enter the green and lush Dilar valley.

Dropping through pine forests you encounter the delightful Cortijo Rosales with it’s super views. A great place for lunch! Then further down through the forest before linking with a path contouring round a dramatic gorge high above the Dilar Valley. This leads back to the start point.
