The guidebook covers the most popular and interesting walks and multi-day treks in Spain's Sierra Nevada mountain range. Mainland Spain's highest summit Mulhacén is included in the 38 routes along with the white villages of Trevélez, Lanjarón and Capileira and high mountain ridge traverses, scrambles and the Spanish Three Peaks challenge.

"They say everybody has a book in them. Well this is mine. It's taken 18 months of my life to write but over 17 years of research and exploration, since I first set foot in the Sierra Nevada mountains and cast my eyes to their lofty summits. In reality, it's been a labour of love."
Richard Hartley

The walks have been selectively chosen to showcase the Sierra Nevada's dramatic scenery, breathe taking barren rocky peaks, badlands, lush green valleys and tranquil lakes. From the more leisurely routes of the Cumbres Verde area to the Sierra Nevada's highest ascent of Mulhacén, we are confident there are routes to suit a range of abilities.
