This walk in the open country around Monda has wonderful views of La Torrecilla and La Sierra de Las Nieves.
On leaving the car park the first section is a steep ascent out of Monda village and up past the castle. The walk continues upwards to the Gun and Country Club (currently closed) and then drops into a valley where there is a stream running through (this can be easily crossed). Then it is back up again, steeply out of the valley. Once at the top there is a stop for a break to take in the view and enjoy a snack. The route returns to Monda via an old mule trail for refreshments at the usual bar (La Jaula).
The walk should take a little under 4 hours. Well behaved dogs are welcome although they will need to be kept on the lead in certain sections as there are many farm dogs around.
