EL POZUELO

Category: Hill Walk
Meeting Place: Lanes near El Refugio de Juanar
Distance: 6.5 km
Grading: Medium


Itinerary:
This is a walk up into the Sierra Blanca behind the hotel 'Refugio de Juanar'. From the parking area near the hotel walkers take the surfaced route back down towards the main road. After half a kilometre or so they leave the road and descend into the valley. From there it becomes a steep and long single file climb up the rocky path towards the saddle. There is a fair amount of walking up and down the mountain and this can be taxing for some. The wonderful mountain views in this quiet and protected area are well worth the effort. Once at the saddle, the walk continues for some distance on a flat track and eventually drops back down to the Refugio.
