Hike over wooden bridges, across narrow cliffs, around caves and waterfalls, and to lush views at Los Cahorros. Start by crossing over three hanging bridges, with a huge waterfall beneath you. To cross one gorge, you'll need to balance on a narrow cliff edge next to the whitewater, and in some places you'll use metal rings in the cliff as handholds where the cliff hangs over the water. Once you’ve crossed the gorge, you can take a break at a picnic area to eat and enjoy the sights. The rest of the hike takes you along fields of cherries, olives, oranges, and grapes. There are restaurants near the beginning and end of the hike. Bring plenty of water and comfortable shoes. Parts of this hike may be too challenging for small children. A visit to Los Cahorros represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Sierra Nevada National Park family vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • So if you like walking as if you like climbing you can not miss this rutilla. It is not very long and is undemanding, along the road you find various different levels climbing routes and the ride is super nice. Highly recommended
