Why not walk on the peaks of Arenales del Trevenque, one of the most emblematic mid-mountain peaks of the Sierra Nevada? The dryness of the terrain is misleading. Behind the apparent absence of wildlife there hides a microcosm of plants that are well adapted to extreme temperature changes and to the lack of a fertile, moist soil.
This walk offers panoramic views of the Parque Natural de la Sierra de Castril as well as the Sierra del Pozo, Sierra de la Sagra and the Sierra de la Seca, the Castril river valley, the Portillo reservoir with the town of Castril in the background. The tour takes you through forests of black pine, broom and high mountain meadows where the griffon vulture can often be seen.
