This walk starts from the coach drop off point (700m). We walk 0.5 km to the Campo de Futbol (760m). We take a wide stoney track for 2.9 km ascending to the Cerro Gavilan (1200m) (fire lookout) where we have our banana stop. There are fantastic panoramicviews of the Sierra Tejeda and Almijara.We now continue on the same wide track for 1.6 km until the Venta Ma Dolores (1056m) which is the start of the Vereda de Granada. We are on this path for 2.4 km until we arrive at the Venta de Los Pradillos (1040 m) and our well earned lunch stop.After lunch we retrace our route back to Competa bypassing the Cerro Gavilan by taking a path around the side of the fire lookout.Points of Interest : Views of the mountains from the fire lookout and the derelict ventas.
