Najarra

This hike starts from the Puerto de Morcuera at 1,800 meter and takes us without too much effort to above 2,100 meter. It is a typical high mountain hike: little vegetation, rocky and the last part over a ridge, thanks to which we have a wide view in all directions during the hike. From Najarra and the Collado de Najarra we have a wide view over the Parque Regional de la Cuenca Alta de Manzanares with the Pedriza and the reservoir of Santillana.

  • From the car park (1) we walk a small stretch further uphill towards the Puerto de Morcuera (2).
  • On this pass we turn left onto a trail that is closed with a snow fence through which we can go via a gate.
  • From here we just follow the white-yellow marking of this trail. Since we walk most of the time on a crest, it is impossible to lose track here.
  • Once on the Collado de Najarra (3), on the highest point of the route, we follow the trail back to the Puerto de Morcuera and the car park.
