It was in June 2014. We went with Tachenko y Cigarrero.
The route was recorded with GPS and you can find it in Wikiloc, there you can see time, distances and a lot more of details. The link is Las Encinillas – Cortijo La Viña – Restaurante Maitena – Camino del tranvía restaurado – Restaurante La Fabriquilla – Paseo de los Románticos y vuelta por el mismo sitio (en wikiloc)
Picture taken in Restaurante Maitena. From the first part I did not take pictures, but you can see pictures of the TramWay Walk in Ruta del Tranvía de Güéjar Sierra en el blog del Tranvía Amarillo
I do not have too many pictures, you can see plenty of them in reportaje fotográfico bueno de el Paseo de los Románticos está en el blog del Tranvía Amarillo .
Going down is difficult and dangerous. So I would get ready in advance ( for example you can contact me) to avoid risks.
Map of the route would be like this:
Each part was quite difficult, with an average distance of 25-30km daily. Even if they do not look too much in this kind of terrain it is a long distance.
Going to Jerez del Marquesado we stopped quite close to Dehesa del Camarate.
In the morning, Ringo was there taking care of our things and Rebujito ready for departure.
We stopped for eating wit these views
Y these are “snow stars”
Next day weather got worst.

Last day: Río Seco.
They were a couple from France, coming from Camping Las Lomas. They own three orses and they use to ride quite often. We only had one weekend.
So we prepared something quite wild. We would go to Jerez using Piedra Partida track (Sulayr) and coming back day after using Collado del Alguacil track. Near 80km ein two days in this kind of terrain it is something reserved only for strong riders and horses.

In Jerez we stayed in Hotel Picón de Sierra Nevada
2014/2015 is starting and you plan how the year is going to be. Riding in Sierra Nevada is a wonderful experience both for children and adults, alone or with your family.
If you want to leave behind noise and busy days, if you want your children to practice an exciting sport and that will allow them to be surrounded by nature from the first second, here it is your chance.
Wonderful visit from England to Sierra Nevada
I cut/paste their review from Facebook
Fantastic for beginners and experts alike. Beautiful well trained horses, good equipment and in a stunning setting. We would recommend Victor to anyone, he is passionate about his horses and a wonderful guide. The scenery was spectacular. We will certainly be back!
Thank you Victor for a wonderful morning in spectacular scenery with your beautiful horses. I would not hesitate to recommend the stables to anyone who wishes to ride in this area. Horses suitable for every ability and an excellent guide.
Mel, correcting my poor English, told me that I have to say “trekking” better than horse riding. I take good note. Thanks Mel.
They were coming from Casa San Tomas in Guejar Sierra, a place I recommend.
