Hiking in Sierra de Huetor Natural Park

Sierra de Huetor Natural Park

TRIP DESCRIPTION

Sierra de Huetor was declared as Natural Park in 1989, in order to protect its forest, caves, and ethnographic heritage. It is a Natural Park very close to Granada being a natural area accessible, with many tracks and footpaths for hiking but, at the same time, with isolated and well-preserved areas.

Description

The Natural Park of Sierra de Huétor offers multiple hiking possibilities. In this case, we have chosen a lesser-known trail that starts at the village of Nívar and finishes at the farmhouse of Carialfaqui. It is an easy walk through the Sierra of the Alfaguara and Yedra. We will walk in trails, paths and, sometimes, along the Fardes irrigation channel. This is a round trip that goes through crops and pine forests. The views are breathtaking.
