Najarra
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.

Black Tusk

This hike in the heart of Garibaldi Provincial Park in the Canadian province of British Columbia is of an unprecedented beauty. The first part of the hike, very popular among both locals and tourists, takes us to the Garibaldi Lake, a lake that lies beautifully surrounded by a magnificent landscape. During the second part of the hike we walk up to below the Black Tusk, an odd volcanic black rock at about 2,300 metres. The view we have from the ridge below the Black Tusk on the Garibaldi Lake and the surrounding snowy landscape is breathtaking.
