Sierra de Cazorla trekking routes
Time: Two hours.
Leaving the village El Tranco, from where there is a beautiful view of the
reservoir, we must take our way to Cazrola towards the reservoir where the water
overflows through the valley with a beautiful forest by the river Guadalquivir.
After crossing the reservoir, we shall take a track to the right which runs on
paralell to the river throughout the gorge of the Guadalquivir, but this will not
be our track. When reaching the Fuente (fountain) de los Cerezos, we must come
back to a track which is situated between the Tranco village and the reservoir.
The track leads to Villanueva del Arzobispo, making its way down between narrow
walls until reaching an area called El Charco del Aceite. Behind this area there
is a bridge on our right which crosses a track that leads to the Fuente de los
Cerezos camping site, about 6 km. from the aforementioned junction between the
bridge and the road.
The camping site belongs to the AMA, so a permit is required. It is situated
in an area sorrounded by mountains and wooded by pine, cherry and elm trees.
