Acebeas to Navalperal Hiking Route

Acebeas to Navalperal Hiking Route


This route allows visitors to admire one of the most outstanding sites in the Iberian Peninsula from a botanical point of view, whilst also affording beautiful panoramic views. Las Acebeas boasts a particularly wet and cool microclimate and as a result, a surprising hazel grove is found growing beneath the canopy of Corsican pines – the southernmost grove of its kind in Spain – along with many large holly trees. There is also an abundance of climbing plants, such as ivy and clematis, along with species that are very rare in Andalusia, such as wild strawberries and common hepatica. This causes the area to transmit a sense of freshness and lush vegetation more typically found in northern forests.

El Cambrón Hiking Route

El Cambrón Hiking Route


This route links the Dehesa del Oso recreation area with the peak of El Cambrón, which is a large, rocky mass with almost vertical walls that rise above a sea of pines. At Dehesa del Oso you can find a fast-flowing spring, stone tables, small meadows and beautiful walnut trees. The route itself ascends gently via a narrow forest trail, running through a dense forest of European black pine, abundant holm oaks and even a few examples of gall oaks. You will be rewarded with a panorama that stretches from Onsares valley (through which flows the upper section of the River Guadalimar) to the Calar del Mundo mountains and the Sierra de Alcaraz range in Albacete.

Peña del Olivar to Puentehonda Forest Trail

Peña del Olivar to Puentehonda Forest Trail


This route, which is a little less than 5 kilometres in length, leads along a narrow forest trail that we recommend you traverse on foot. The main attraction is the forest of Aleppo pine you will walk through, beneath which there is a rich undergrowth of holm oaks, strawberry trees and laurustinus. The first kilometre of the route is fairly steep, although the remainder is almost entirely flat. To reach the hamlet of Puentehonda simply stay on the track until it joins another, wider trail, at the end of which is Puentehonda.

This track, which is generally in good condition, leads up to El Puntal, a promontory that stands over 1500 metres high and overlooks the town of Siles.
