Hiking Route Improvements

ALM Hiking Path Improvements OnLThe Environmental Department of the Junta de Andalucia is working on the hiking route within the municipality of Otivar, above the Junta de los Rios.

This circular route, which is very popular amongst hikers of all nationalities, connects at either end with the Cabre Montes mountain road and consists of a narrow footpath that winds around the hill/mountain above where a series of waterfalls, known as the Junta de los Rios, begin.

The footpath lies within the Parque Natural de las Sierra de Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama and extends 7.3 kilometres.

The work consists of improving the footpath surface where it has deteriorated owing to rainfall and more importantly, shoring up with cables and wire netting, etc., rocks that are in danger of coming down, as well as removing those that already have and block the route.

They are also going to cut back vegetation where it invades the footpath and erect handrails (cables threaded through stone posts) along the way where it gets a little hairy.

This work is just one of 35 other tasks that are being carried out in the said natural park, as well as the ones of Baza, Castril & Huetor; the Sierra de la Sagra and Los Acantilados de Maro Cerro Gordo, amongst others.
