Hiking routes to explore Malaga

Nestled in a sea of mountains, Malaga offers many trails and paths to explore its stunning valleys and rocky paths. From the emblematic Caminito del Rey to the captivating waterfalls, here are some of the most recommended routes to discover the province of Malaga on foot.

Bridge of El Saltillo

This short four-km-trail offers one of the most breathtaking views of the province of Malaga. Nestled in the heart of La Axaraquía, El Puente del Saltillo is a short route, but with a fairly high level of difficulty. On this route you will cross footbridges and suspension bridges at 78 meters high and enjoy the stunning fauna and flora. This route is ideal for all mountain lovers who are in good physical shape and want to enjoy a unique experience; however, it is not recommended for those who suffer from vertigo nor for children.

Touring through the mountains of Malaga

5,000 hectares of pine forests make up the area of the Montes de Málaga Nature Reserve, a secluded area that offers multiple options of trails to explore and enjoy the charms of this part of Malaga’s region.

Among its most renowned trails is the circular route of Aula de las Contadoras, ideal for family walks thanks to its gentle slope, its shaded areas and its recreational spots.

Another highly recommended route is Fuente de la Reina, which ends at the Pocopán viewpoint, the perfect vantage point from which to admire the most marvelous views.

Sierra de Almorchón

This mountainous area is renowned for being home to the famous Caminito del Rey, as well as El Chorro. This 10 km long route – through which you will pass tunnels and suspension bridges with direct view on the Gaitanes Gorge – offers one of the most amazing backdrops of the Sierra de Almorchon.

This trail is ideal to enjoy with the family thanks to its moderate level of difficulty and the multiple activities -kayaking, paddle surfing- or the different gastronomic offerings that you can find in the parking area.

 

La Rejía waterfall

Tucked away near the white village of Tolox, you will find one of the most amazing cascades in the province of Malaga, the Rejía waterfall. This enclave offers stunning photography and a refreshing route along the Caballos river. This trail is ideal to enjoy in summer due to the many opportunities to cool off among the pools, waterfalls and rivers that it shelters.
