Ocejón

The Ocejón is with 2,049 meters not the highest peak of the province of Guadalajara, but certainly the most emblematic, thanks to its distinctive silhouet and location. From the peak we have a wonderful view over the Sierra de Ayllón and we can also see the peaks of the Sierra de Guadarrama, including the Peñalara. The trail to it does neither present any difficulties nor require too much effort, although we do have to overcome more than 900 meters in altitude.

  • From the parking (1) we walk down the road into the village and we go right into the first street, the Calle del Rincón (2), where a signpost already indicates the Ocejón already indicated and we see the first white-red mark.
  • In the next street, the Calle Cabezadas, we also turn right and at the end of this street follow the bend further to the right (3).
  • A little further on we go left onto the path, signposted with "Camino del Ocejón" (4).
  • The marking is initially white-red and the path is easy to follow. After a considerable time of walking we turn left at a junction (5) where the marking turns white-yellow.
  • Through this path we finally reach the pass "Collado Perdices" (6). Here we see another signpost pointing straight on towards the Ocejon. A little further on the paths split and we keep right (7).
  • We walk on a trail with a lot of stones towards the Ocejón. On the last stretch we take the path to the left (8) and walk zigzag uphill to the Ocejón (9).
  • The way back is via the same route. If on the path back to the Collado Perdices you keep a bit more to the left on a narrow trail you lose less height and shorten the route a bit.
