Trail: Casares Walks: Los Reales circular (0)
Contributor: simonwater41 Activity Type: Walking Difficulty: Average Distance: 3.978 mi (6.402 km)
Description: This route takes us through two trails in the Sierra Bermeja: the Paseo de los Pinsapos and Los Realillos. They take us up to the summit, Los Reales. From there we descend along the service road to our starting point. There are great views to all points of the compass during this circular route. The vegetation includes the rare Pinsapo Pine. You can drive up to the starting point near the Refugio; note that the road is quite narrow in parts. You get most out of this trail when the weather permits views over a long distance - i.e. when the summit is not covered in cloud and there is not too much haze. Then Gibraltar and the coast of North Africa are clearly visible from the summit, amongst many other spectacular sights. It can be cold at these heights (Los Reales is at 1,452 metres, 4,764 feet) so it is advisable to bring along an extra layer of clothing.
