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.

Aguascebas de Gil Cobo up to Blanquillo Hiking Route

Aguascebas de Gil Cobo up to Blanquillo Hiking Route


This wide trail leads into the San Ginés gorge, which runs parallel to the stream. The course of the steam has been shaped by the caprice of rainfall and runoff water over centuries and as a result is characterised by its unusual cascades and small pools. Some stretches are flanked by steep, rocky walls, while its banks are home to an exceptionally diverse range of plant life that includes a number of different endemic species, along with other plants such as yews, holly and even birch, a tree that is only found in northern climes and as such is extremely rare in the park.

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.

Campo del Espino to Banderillas Hiking Route


This route begins right in the heart of Campos de Henán Perea, a high intermontane plateau that is located at an altitude of between 1600 and 1700 metres. It is almost entirely treeless, extremely rocky and boasts a great number of funnel-shaped formations – such as sinkholes and potholes – that attest to both the harsh conditions of this area during winter and the nature of its composition. It is, in fact, the largest “sponge” to be found anywhere in the park: the limestone absorbs the water and, over countless years, is dissolved to create this remarkable landscape that many have compared to the surface of the moon. However, despite the fact that at certain times of the year this area may appear to be as dry as a desert, the largest underwater aquifer to be found anywhere in the park is located just beneath the surface.

Cañada del Saucar to Puntal de la Misa Hiking Route

Cañada del Saucar to Puntal de la Misa Hiking Route


This is one of the most impressive walking routes in the Segura mountains. As you progress upwards, vegetation becomes scarcer, finally being reduced to a sparse copse of laburnum. However, when you reach the top of the limestone crag you will find yourself in the magnificent and inspiring surroundings of the Segura highlands: an enormous limestone shelf, 5 kilometres long, with pastures grazed by flocks of Segura sheep and pockmarked with sinkholes (called sorbeores by locals), hidden watercourses and rocky escarpments.

Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente Hiking Route

Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente Hiking Route


We cannot speak of the Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Natural Park without remembering the extraordinary figure of Professor Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente. Since 2001, the year in which this tourist route was developed under the guidance of the renowned naturalist and writer Joaquín Araujo, the Féliz Rodríguez de la Fuente Route (RFRF) has become a veritable monument to the best moments of the TV series El Hombre y la Tierra (“Man and the Earth”).  In 2011, 30 years after Professor Rodríguez de la Fuente died in an unfortunate accident, the RFRF was revamped with the addition of new information panels and signage, which allows visitors to travel the route in complete symbiosis with nature and without missing a single detail.
