    The Park offers a wide variety of activities and excursions, and in our case we were going with child cart and we're somewhat limited, you can do other kinds of activities. For people who want to go hiking and enjoy nature without heat, it is a highly recommended site.

    Wide horizons, birds of prey circling, fresh air and a feeling of exhilaration and space! Great conservation centre with tips on appropriate walks.  more »

    One of the most important natural sites of Madrid, highly recommended to upload to see the Lakes, and for the most daring climb to the peak of Peñalara and cross the cliff of carnations. The views are wonderful. Both in Madrid, Segovia. But if one prefers to do a less courageous route is you can stay calmly walking in the vicinity of the laguna grande.

  • If you are dying of hotness in a city, one of the options to enjoy mountains, clear and fresh air, breathtaking views, well organized routes.
  • 1 hour away from Madrid you get 2400 mountains, lakes to swim and beautiful hiking routes.
  • Take the 'tren de la naturaleza' up to the peak, then a long trek to the top, but worth it.
  • It's a beautiful place for an easy hike. Once you reach the summit of Peñalara keep going as there is an interesting pass with large boulders that makes it fun for newbies. It's a protected area so don't strand away from the path and please don't litter. There are several fountains which come from the river going down the mountain, you can use them for drinking but still try to bring plenty of water. Additionally it's better to rent a car as the bus service is highly unreliable, we were stranded for 5 hours and it's not the first time.
  • You won't find better place than this for hiking if you are from Madrid and don't want to drive long.
