Hiking the Sierra

When I get the chance to escape to the mountains I take it! Being in Madrid without a car can make that tough so when Miguel’s friends suggested La Pedriza last weekend we jumped on the chance to get some fresh air and a little adventure! It ended up being quite a lot of adventure when we lost the trail and came across boulders with no foot holds. Some of the more experienced hikers gave it a go but I played it safe and took the long route with my friend Maria. We all ended up at the same peak with spectacular views just in time for lunch!

 

At the end of the route, nestled in the mountains there’s a little bar that has snacks and drinks for hikers. La Sierra de Madrid is the perfect escape if you’re looking for fresh air and most trailheads are accessible by bus with a little walking. Don’t forget sunscreen and extra layers!
