Recommended Hike

Gorge of the Guadalentín

On the way back of this hike we walk via a charming and comfortable trail through a gorge along the river Gaudalentín. On the way out to this gorge we walk over the dirt road of the AMA. First we get past the spectacular rock formations of the Estrecho de los Perales. The highlight of this hike is during the steep descent to the river Guadalentín, where we have a fantastic view on the overwhelming rock faces of the Poyos de la Carilarga.
