The Majalijar peak is 1,882 m high. It is the highest peak in the Sierra Huetor natural park. In the Mediterranean forest we will find different kinds of trees. With a bit of luck we will spot some animals which live in the area such as mountain goats and griffon vultures.
We will start walking to a farmhouse called Linillos. After a short stop there we will keep on walking and ascend. We will pass some different peaks until we reach the main one where the views are totally breath taking.
After this we will follow a stony path to descend. Here everyone needs to walk very carefully. We will pass the base of Majalijar and cross a gully with oak trees. Once we have passed the gully we will arrive at Fardes irrigation canal. Our hiking trip ends at the same point where we started our tour.
