La Sagra Summit
Mountain Walk
Granada, Andalucía, Spain

A fairly strenuous walk to the summit (2381m) of the spectacular peak of La Sagra. This is an approximately 5 hour return trip and is best attempted by experienced and properly equipped hill walkers. Much of this walk is on loose rock and shale tracks.

To start this trip make your way to the Huéscar Area Recreativa of Las Santas - see Huéscar-La Sagra trip. Look for the wooden signpost on your left to "La Sagra". (It says 3hrs - ???) Drive along this track to a fork in the road. Bear right. After a while you will see a turning to the left which you ignore. Continue until the road is joined by another track coming in at a sharp angle to the left, by a fire warning sign. Take this road to the left. Ignore the next turning on the left and continue winding up, past a small construction with a wooden gate, until you reach a car parking area at the end of the road. Here you start your walk along the trail through the trees. This will eventually lead up to the summit. Take careful note of marker stones (cairns) and sticks.
