Route of Sierra Prieta (Colmenar)

Distance: 3.5 kilometres
Difficulty: Medium
Transport: On foot

The itinerary starts at kilometre 521 on the MA115, the old road from Málaga to Granada. From here, you take the footpath that goes through the gorge coming down from the Pelado de la Sierra Camarolos.

After passing a stream and crossing a meadow, you'll get to the top of the Sierra Prieta by way of the east slope. Then follow the crest westward and descend by the north face, until you reach a holm-oaks wood and an arm of the river Guadalmedina.

Follow the river up to a meadow between Sierra de Camarolos and Sierra Prieta, from where you return to the starting point.
