"Easy" trail (Sendero Cerrada del Utrero)260 views2008-07-28
near Vadillo Castril, Jaén, Andalucía, Spain
N37.9242 W2.9257

(Parque Natural de la Sierra de Cazorla, Segura, y las Villas) This trail was listed as "easy" in the park guide. The rough, narrow, cliff-side trail, steep climbs/drops (with rock stairs), and approx. 35º C temperatures seemed kind of harsh for an "easy" trail. Later, though, the trail did become quite easy. Looking NE.
