Description of Hiking to the Valley of the Barranca Navacerrada 3hThe Madrid city can sometimes suffocate and if you are here it is clear that you need some nature. Well, you won't have to look any further because you've come across a perfect hiking trail . A hiking trail , with an inexplicable beauty, so lush and exuberant, that you will not believe that such an Eden of pines, hills and colors, is so close to the city, just one hour from the center . We are talking about trekking through the valley of La Barranca , in the Sierra de Guadarrama , with a route that will last 3 hours .
The rich thing about a hiking trail is that you disconnect from everything completely, all worries will disappear during the excursion and for this you don't have to plan at all. It is only to come with comfortable sports clothing and shoes (although mountain boots come better) and enjoy the landscapes that await us in La Barranca . No materials, no previous experiences, no courses, nothing at all. Just walk and admire. Of course, the guide for this trekking route is provided by us.
Our hiking route through La Barranca is an authentic Madrid jewel, a well-guarded secret that seems unreal, as unreal as those mobile wallpapers, and now you will see why. The Barranca valley could not be better located, at the foot of the Bola del Mundo and La Maliciosa , and immersed in the Sierra de Guadarrama , submerged in dense pine forests that do not seem to end, acquiring orange tones during spring staining the entire forest in its path, and furrowed by streams, rivers and reservoirs.
This hiking route through La Barranca is located in the town of Navacerrada , and we will begin it by walking along an ecological path with a slight ascent. We will then be trekking along the Canto Gordo slope and in these surroundings we will come across the old Real Sanatorio del Guadarrama , an iconic corner of this area due to the large number of films that have been shot. We will continue our work, without haste and at our own pace, until we reach a spectacular place, a stone ledge from where we can easily and overwhelmingly see the Navacerrada Reservoir . You will be speechless when you glimpse it timidly protruding between these hills completely covered with the most absolute green.
We continue this time integrating ourselves in the Ortiz Path and its beautiful paths will take us to the Mirador de las Canchas and here, the landscape is from another world, so varied and distinguished that it does not seem let it be in the Madrid city . We will be at the so-called Mirador de las Canchas from where we can contemplate: the Cerro de Guarramillas or also called the Bola del Mundo , the Cuerda de las Cabrillas and La Maliciosa , some of the most emblematic peaks of Guadarrama .
Throughout our walk we will discover that La Barranca stands out for its scenic value and rich nature. This is due, among other things, to the fact that it is crossed by the Samburiel River , which gives more life to its surroundings, creating beautiful banks and streams, so during our hiking route in certain sections we will have as a melody the relaxing splash of water. By the way, near its birth, by La Maliciosa , rock art has been found dating back more than 5 thousand years.
To finish this hiking trip through the Barranca valley , we will go to a true haven of peace, the Air Force reservoir . We will go over its bridge and surrounded by silence and with these turquoise waters under our feet, we will be able to see La Maliciosa and the Bola del Mundo , an insurmountable picture to end our day of hiking .
