On the route that we propose today, we will be cycling along the new bridge of the Guadalhorce River. This finally puts an end to a great demand from hikers and cyclists who every day pass through this Natural Park.
On the route that we propose today, we will be cycling along the new bridge of the Guadalhorce River. This finally puts an end to great demand from hikers and cyclists who every day pass through this Natural Park. The wooden of this path structure is the largest in Europe, with 270 meters long.
Start at Fast Monkey to Torremolinos
We will start at Fast Monkey to take the Northwest direction to Torremolinos Singletrack trails. After following it until the end, we will reach an area of fun trails, some a bit more technical, slopes, stones and roots. These easy level trails are perfect to start on the singletracks and gain technique on our bike.
At this point, we will descend to reach Churriana, specifically the Residencial El Pizarrillo park. Right here, we will take a path heading north, which runs parallel to Arroyo Bienquerido, a tributary of the Guadalhorce River which surrounds the Malaga airport runway.
Airport views to Guadalhorce
We will circulate through the head of runway 12 and 13 of the airport, heading south. The path will run parallel to the new runway. From here, we will be able to enjoy a spectacular view of the aerial operations of landings and take-offs of the planes. If you are a fan of aviation, you can take a few minutes to contemplate it.
Guadalhorce Natural Park
From the moment we head south at the airport, we will ride approximately 4.8 km. Here we will ride the bridge to the left to the Guadalhorce delta. We have arrived at the Natural Park where we can observe a multitude of birds and reptiles. Following the path marked as Vía Litoral, we will cross the bridge. We will reach the highest point of the bridge. Take some time and contemplate the magnificence of the natural environment.
Choose your way: head to Malaga City Centre or Misericordia sea promenade
Let’s now continue towards the South, following the path that takes us to the mouth of the river. From here, it connects with the Paseo Marítimo bike path, which will take us directly to the city centre and the surroundings of the Port of Malaga.
The return will be by the same route, although once we cross the new footbridge again, we will continue towards the South, until we leave the neighbourhood of Guadalmar, next to the Church, to head towards Torremolinos until we make it to Fast Monkey again.
In total, we will have travelled an approximate total of 51 km with an accumulated difference of 350 meters. It’s an easy level route in terms of technique or large slopes. This one is probably more of a medium level route due to the distance
