CAMINO del CONDES, ALHAURÍN EL GRANDE
A new walk:this is a circular walk on the north side of the Sierra de Mijas, mostly in the shade. The silence of this forest track makes this walk particularly pleasant.
This is a varied terrain walk which takes in great views across the coast. There will be steep paths and ridges to climb. The route will lead to the Mirador del Gitanos. During wet periods there may be some streams to cross.
Medium to Heavy
This is a circular walk mainly on a good, wide track, going through mixed woodland, to the site of the vulture restaurant where griffon vultures are fed by the Ayuntamiento. The walk reaches a point with fantastic views of Estepona and beyond.
ERMITA DE LOS MONJES
This walk reaches a point with great views of Marbella, Puerto Banús and across to Gibraltar on a clear day. There is some climbing particularly at the beginning of approx. 200 metres.
FUENTE DEL ACEBUCHE, ALHAURÍN EL GRANDE
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.
LA BOLA DE MIJAS
This is a linear walk with a continuous climb along a track weaving through the pine forest at Alhaurín El Grande, passing the Casa Forestal, to the top of La Bola. From easy scrambling to long descents for the fit walker.
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.
