Sierra Nevada - Lajuar - Cerro del Almirez
(9 h. aprox.)
We start in Laujar de Andarax town walking on to Paterna
del Río. One km. farther, we shall take a forest
track that branches off to the right.
The track is quite tortuous but gives a spectacular view
of the countryside and of the Laujar town.
Then we shall reach the rest of Monterrey leaving a track
to our right towards the Cortijo del cerecillo shelter
sorrounded by a recreation area dominated by pines and
planted with walnuts and chestnut trees.
A steep track behind the shelter goes to the Albergue
Walking on the northeast along the spur we shall reach
a hill on the right of which is the Cerro del Almirez,
2,817 m. at its highest point.
Its better to do it in a couple of days.
