The Juanar Circuit is a fairly short but steep walk around the back of the Refugio initially following the Istán route for a short while. This walk then leads firstly up but then down into the a valley, up again and with the subsequent walk down to the Refugio.
This walk is to the peak of Monte Mayor (579m), starting from Benahavís village. At the summit there are uninterrupted views of the coast from Marbella to Estepona which has given the site its valued strategic position throughout history.
This walk follows a route through almond and olive groves and climbs up to the Puerto Alto. There is a steep 400 metre ascent of the Cuesta de lo Alto which is the hardest part of the walk. The effort required is compensated by the magnificent views.
Medium to Heavy
This walk is to the top of the iconic La Concha.This is a long and at times difficult walk with some steep ascents and descents, as well as narrow stretches sometimes with big drops on either side. This walk is not for the fainthearted nor those without good stamina.
This is an ´out and back´ walk starting at Mijas village and up into the hills behind where magnificent views can be seen on a clear day. To enjoy the walk a reasonable level of fitness is required.
