Gran Senda de Málaga GR 249
The GR-249 is one of the newest and most popular GR’s in Andalusia, completed in 2014. The beautiful, varied and well-signposted route starts and ends in Málaga. The route from Alhaurín de la Torre to Alhaurín El Grande passes 10 minutes from our accommodation.
There you will also find the start of the walking route Sendero Presidiarios where you can walk in the forest in the mountains between the pine trees and other beautiful nature. Great views on several villages in the region, Málaga city and the sea.
Is a hiking game where you use a gps receiver or a phone with the app c:geo to find a so-called cache (hiding place).
In the cache there is always a logbook where the finder can leave his name. In the area of Alhaurín de la torre and Alhaurín el grande are several caches hidden. So plenty of opportunities for geocaching enthusiasts!
