Cerrada del Utrero and Cascada de Linarejos Hiking Route

Cerrada del Utrero and Cascada de Linarejos Hiking Route


The area known as Cerrada del Utrero-Linarejos is a breathtaking natural work of art, sculpted by the River Guadalquivir out of the surrounding limestone. The route is traversed on foot, enabling you to appreciate the jagged rock forms and apertures created by water over the course of thousands of years. During this pleasant hike you will be accompanied by narrow-leafed rock privet, terebinth and willow as you head towards one of the most photographed spots in the park: the Cascada de Linarejos waterfall, also known as the cola del caballo or “horse’s tail”.

Laguna de Valdeazores Hiking Route

Laguna de Valdeazores Hiking Route


From the Las Navas track near the hill of Collado Bermejo, a forest trail leads off to the left and is closed to vehicles by a barrier: this is the start of the route. It is an easy descent through Corsican pines, ferns, ashes, maples, gall oaks, holm oaks, elms, a number of yews and holly trees, where the most characteristic fauna of the area can also be observed. 3 kilometres on from the starting point you will reach the stream known as Arroyo de la Reina, which you must cross in order to rejoin the trail. It is a stream that begins up in the high mountains, and makes its way down through narrow mountain passes.

Poyos de la Mesa Hiking Route

Poyos de la Mesa Hiking Route


Navas are extremely fertile stretches of land located at a certain altitude and which have, since time immemorial, been used by residents of the mountains for grazing their livestock or planting crops. The first of these, which you can reach via the JF-7091 (a provincial road, the first section of which is asphalted before later becoming a dirt track), is known as the Nava del Espino and marks the beginning of this route. The trail begins next to the ruins of a forest house that once bore the same name as the nava. The trail consists of a narrow dirt track all the way to the end, and it is closed to private vehicles. It passes through a stunning forest of Corsican pine and wide expanses of pasture, gradually snaking its way upwards along the slopes of the peak of Los Poyos de la Mesa.

The first section of the asphalted track affords stunning views of the town of Cazorla and several viewpoints from which to admire the Old Town.

The Cañamares Trail, passing through Chilluévar and La Iruela


The trail runs parallel to the upper part of the Cañamares river. Right at the start of the hike you’ll pass through Los Tiscares, a group of farmhouses built in the traditional style. The sound of water accompanies you all along the itinerary, owing to the fact that the Cañamares river holds water all year round and flows through a deep valley between steep slopes.
