Hiking trail between Alajar and Linares de la Sierra
This ancient path connects two places that are well worth visiting in Sierra de Aracena, a hiking path into the Natural Park and which shows us the hallmarks of this location.
The path connecting these two places in the mountains can be performed in both directions, being easier if you make it from Alajar to Linares for the difference in height among the two villages. The distance is only 7.6 kilometres return trip, which will take approximately 3 hours and can be considered of medium difficulty.
To reach the beginning of trail from Linares you have to go to the cemetery; you'll see the sign indicating the way to go shortly after the last houses.
The path is characterized by the presence of a stream and areas that may be flooded depending on the time of year so we recommend bringing spare shoes or socks if you get wet feet.
A few kilometres from the starting point you reach Puerto de Linares, the highest point of this trail and where you can relax or eat something, from here the path becomes easier.
The recommended season for this route is during the rainy season for its waterfalls and the presence of streams. We recommend wearing suitable shoes as in some parts of the course the ground is not firm and you may have to walk through water flooded areas.
