A short walk from El Colmenar to the Cañón de las Buitreras

There is a  short walk from El Colmenar to the Cañón de las Buitreras (Canyon of Vultures). You can either drive to El Colmenar, or take the train.

The walk was just a few kilometers, and took 2-3 hours. There are signs in the village, and maps to the Cañón de las Buitreras.

The house next to the electricity power station you have to pass to enter the path to the Cañón de las Buitreras.

 

Be careful to follow a rocky path that goes up to the left of the road and follows the electricity pipeline. You turn right at the top of this path.

 

Once on the path, it’s a straightforward walk.

 

Aquaduct…or slide.

 

Mysterious tunnel…

 

There’s always goats (cabras).

 

A slightly scary suspension bridge.

 

Lots of buitreras (vultures).

 

A small pebble beach, which can be accessed from the main path.
