Sunday in Granada: Hike the Los Cahorros trail

If a simple walk through Granada on a Sunday is not enough for you, try hiking the Los Cahorros trail. It is a beautiful hike passing waterfalls and rocks eroded by the Monachil riverbed as well as crossing suspension bridges. The best part, however, is the breathtaking views you will be able to enjoy.

The starting point of the hike is in a town called Monachil. The town is located in a valley in the national park of the Sierra Nevada which provides Monachil with a beautiful natural setting. Monachil is about 14 km away from Granada but there is a bus going back and forth every day. The hike is considered not to be difficult as it is also appropriate for children. The hike takes about two and a half hours.

The trail is also known for bird-watching, enjoying the beautiful wildflowers, picking fruit from fruit trees and finding peace outside of the busy city streets. This is a great Sunday activity if you are in the province of Granada.
