We will begin the guided hiking trail close to the camping area of Robledal. It will be a linear route with a long ascent to a height of 2,069 m. This hiking trip is highly recommended.
First, we will walk along a track surrounded by a reforested area. We will follow the path and pass a hill with incredible views to the Los Bermejales reservoir and the impressive Sierra Nevada mountain range. On a clear day, we can see many more ranges like el Hacho and Huétor.
After this part, we will enter a shady area with maple, pine and yew trees. We will cross El Salto Del Caballo to reach the path, which will lead us to the Maroma peak. We leave the forest and from this point of the excursion we will walk on limestone.
