The last leg of the MTB Cazorla Tour is an easy day, (at least compared to the previous day!) starting with a steady, easy gradient on broad caminos, before spilling out on to the karstic tundra of the high planes of the Sierras de Segura then descending on fine single track to La Toba.
The back roads from Baena to Cazorla...peace and tranquility
"Daz" and "Bren" fancied a few days away from the rain and sleet of gloomy England
The longest and toughest day on the GR247 MTB Tour: 70km of challenging terrain, with over 4,000m of climbing: its a doozy.
The "shits of death"... Not a very auspicious name to start such a great climb, but a decent enough warning of whats ahead in any event.
The highest road accessible peak in the park, El Yelmo stands tall with its official summit at 1,809 m. Its final kilometres affording magnificent views across a vast swath of southern Spain.
A pleasant and picturesque little climb that seems to be mostly ignored by any form of traffic.
