Sierra Nevada - Ocaña (12
We start going north out Ohanes and keep going north
for the whole route. Taking first the Granada road, 1
km. farther, we shall encounter a track to our left which
goes up to the north.
The track branches off, and we shall turn to the right
to arrive at Tices Village, in a beautiful valley.
On the right side of the cliff there is a track running
up to the Puerto de Santillana northwards.
There are excellent views of the whole suntrap of the
Sierra Nevada. Beneath, there is a valley in which the
village of Santillana is found and through which passes
the avenue of the same name right up to the doors of Ocaña.
This route involves the obvious problems of a high mountain
stretch so its better to do it in a couple of days.
