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.

Reservoir of Contreras

The reservoir of Contreras lies between the villages of Villargordo del Cabriel in the province of Valencia and La Pesquera, Enguídanos and Minglanilla in the province Cuenca and has been created in the confluence of the rivers Cabriel and Guadazaón, at the edge of the natural park Hoces del Cabriel. The hike starts in Villargordo del Cabriel and takes us over hills and through vineyards to a path that runs high along the reservoir and gives us a splendid view on the blue-green water.
