The walk starts by following the Camino Forestal into the pine forest and up to the Fuente del Acebuche (wild olive spring) eventually leading to the Forest Guard’s house where there is a stop to admire the spectacular views of the Guadalhorce Valley.
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 with big drop-offs. This walk is not for the fainthearted nor those without good stamina.
The Juanar Istán track is a fairly short but steep walk around the back of the Refugio taking the Istán route, first towards the Mirador, then through the forest gates and then right towards Istán.
This walk has fantastic countryside with mountain views in the vicinity of Monda. It continues past the Monda castle towards the Gun and Country Club and then back to Monda via an old mule trail.
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.
