Arroyomolinos de Leon, a small municipality of Huelva situated at 609 metres above sea-level is the starting point for this hiking route which takes us to Cerro de los Bonales, the highest peak in Huelva with 1054 metres height.
Starting at Arroyomolinos the route has a length of approximately 22 kilometres and takes about 6 hours to complete.
We recommend parking the car close to the Church of Santiago el Mayor from where you can go walking to the boundary of the village where starts the signposted trail. After passing by the graveyard of the village starts a slight ascend along an asphalted road which further on turns into a cobbled street along which we keep ascending until reaching a plain which gives a little break after the slope.
The route will show us a varied vegetation, especially if we chose spring for this tour; finally there is a sign indicating the direction towards Tendudia, which you have to follow, after which you arrive at a stream and the ruins of old farmhouses.
After walking across a farmhouse you reach a road which leads directly to Pico Tentudia, a little trail which is hardly visible which will ascend along a steep slope; an effort that is well worth for its impressive views from the highest peak in the province Huelva.
-We recommend carrying plenty of water for the road and if possible a GPS as some parts of the trail are barely visible.
- If you feel up to it you can visit the peak Pico Tentudia and from there walk to Cerro de los Bonales.
