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.

Cancho Gordo

This hike takes us to the Cancho Gordo, the highest point of the Sierra de la Cabrera. The Sierra de la Cabrera is a small mountain range close to Madrid that stands out as a spectacular rocky wall against the surroundings and can be seen from far from the A1 Madrid-Burgos. The hike starts with a strong climb that takes us relatively quickly to the Cancho Gordo, from where we have a spectacular view over the entire Sierra de la Cabrera and the surrounding area.
