The Vereda de Estrella
The historical "Vereda de Estrella" path winds its way up a narrow valley before turning southwards. At this point a classic view of the north faces of Sierra Nevada giants of Alcazaba (3350m) and Mulhacen (3482m) come into view.
We have two hiking tours, the "Cortijos de Hornillo" (Moderate) and the full circuit of the "Vereda de Estrella" (Challenging). You will find more information about each of these below. The best months are May, June, September, October and November
Both routes start from the same point, a narrow road trailhead reached from the town of Guejar Sierra and adjacent to base of the Barranco de San Juan (1180m). The drive from Granada is 30 minutes.
