Try a moderately challenging walk of 14km, with an accumulated height gain of well over 500 metres over the course of the route – Canal de la Espartera at the Sierra Nevada Natural Park.
You’ll see a variation of nature: from the dusty, arid slopes of Trevenque mountain to the lush vegetation and crashing waterfalls of the Dilar valley. This circle path is an official walking route, so it will be very well signposted. It’s better to go there in spring or autumn, as snow in winter is a potential problem on the higher sections of the route and summer heat will increase the difficulty of climbing.
The route starts near Fuente del Hervidero, a traditional country restaurant on the edge of the Sierra Nevada Natural Park, accessed from La Zubia, a satellite town of Granada.
starting point: Fuente del Hervidero restaurant at the Sierra Nevada Natural Park
route length: 14 km
highlights: the Sierra Nevada Natural Park, Trevenque mountain, waterfall, Dilar valley, Fuente del Hervidero restaurant.
