From this village so charmingly we can start to make various hiking trails each more impressive, from Guejar- Sierra following the indication of the “Vereda de la Estrella”. La ruta comienza al lado del Barranco de San Juan, where one of the stations of the old tram was. The path climbs gently between oaks, chestnuts and maples. A little later we will see, on a low wall at the roadside, a chestnut centennial known as “Grandpa”:

Brown centenary

Cuando llevamos aproximadamente una hora y media de ruta, el camino gira inexperadamente hacia el sur y nos ofrece unas magníficas vistas de la “Rope tresmiles”, highest peaks of Sierra Nevada:

The road follows the valley of the Real stream, passing near the mine Justice, and continuing another long way to the confluence of four gorges.

If we desired, We can complete the route with a visit to the nearby “Secret cave”, which it is an artificial shelter under a large rock

This beautiful route, It leads from the village of Guejar Sierra, until “secret cave”, in a beautiful way where we see the abundant native vegetation of the area, as well as huge maples,robles, chestnut trees and stunning views of the north faces of the Mulhacén, Alcazaba and Veleta.
