Routes to go mountain biking in the province of Granada

Granada is a province that has mountain terrain ideal for routes of very diverse modalities, from XC or trail to enduro or downhill. From the capital itself there are many routes through the surrounding area or even to the Sierra Nevada with great slopes, but with spectacular views of the city of Granada and its mountains. But not everything is Sierra Nevada in Granada. On the coast of Almuñécar and Motril you can take very attractive routes along the coastal cliffs and discover the mountain areas near the sea, from which you can enjoy beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea. You also cannot miss visiting towns by bicycle such as those in the Genil Valley: Santa Fe, Pinos Puente or Fuente Vaqueros.

Vedas de Granada Route

Very fun and easy route to complete, which will also allow us to obtain some of the best views of the city of Granada and its most representative monuments, such as the Alhambra. Departing and arriving in the city, you must begin by ascending Cerro de San Miguel and the trails of Haza Grande, Pinillos, Cuevas de Reverte or El Hornillo. Most of the route is done along tracks and trails, many of them frequented by bikers in the area, with ups and downs on singletrack to enjoy with your mountain bike ( better if it is double suspension in this area).

Grenadine Coast Route

80 kilometers south of the city of Granada we find the coastal area of ​​the province, around the town of Almuñécar. From there this 39 km circular route begins along the rugged Granada coast, passing through the vicinity of the beaches of La Herradura, Calaiza or Cantarriján. After this coastal section it is time to turn northeast towards the interior and begin to climb for 7 kilometers up Cerro del Aguila, until reaching 750 meters of altitude and contemplating, in a southerly direction, beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Granada coast. It is the ideal point to make a short stop along the way and take advantage of the views. From that point it is time to go down again towards Almuñécar along sections of forest track alternating with others of asphalt until returning to the town.

DH Hoya de la Mora Route

Sierra Nevada is not only a territory for skiers, but also for downhill riders. One of the best-known descents is the one that connects Hoya de la Mora, in the upper part of the ski resort, with the city of Granada. In total there are almost 20 kilometers of descent to the town of La Zubia, with open trails on grass terrain, singletracks, tracks and several technical trials. The first 5 kilometers are connecting sections and the last 4 kilometers, until reaching the city, are flat. The excitement and vertigo are concentrated in the central kilometers, where you descend more than 2,000 meters. A real attraction for lovers of downhill, enduro and e-bikes.
