We start off on a wide track before ascending a steepish, well worn track for 10 mins that wends its way to the Fuente del Acebuche. From here we continue with a steady climb for 5 minutes along a well defined rocky path to the Casa del Guardamontes (also known as Casa Forestal on previous walks) , before descending down on the rocky path, onto a wide track that continues on the level, following the contours of the mountain, with glimpsed views of the Guadalhorce Valley. At a large clearing we continue on the wide track for 1.5km upwards until we reach a mirador above Alhaurin El Grande, with views towards Coin. We then re-trace our steps back down the Main forest track with continuing views across the Guadalhorce valley to Malaga, keeping to the easy Main track all the way, back down to the car park area. Walk elevations 200-300 metres All welcome to join us @ 2.00-2.30 pm for menu del dia at Venta Los Chavos, Alhaurin el Grande. Easy road access back to Fuengirola.
