lowandnorthdia2-1Once everyone has been introduced to their horse we start the ride with a steep climb through Sierra Nevada oaks (malojos) and holly oaks. It will be a mixture between forestry track (into the National Park) and “vaqueros” (cowboys) paths. We will reach 2,000m high very soon to Loma Los Papeles and there the track allows some steady trots and canters (if the breathtaking views over Sierra Nevada allows you to do so). Also we will pass the remains of trenches of “The Spanish Red Army” from the Civil War (1936-1939).
