Güéjar Sierra: some of the best trails in Southern Europe
Güéjar Sierra, Andalucia is a lively mountain town in the foothills of Sierra Nevada. Dry weather and rugged terrain offer year-round mountain biking of exceptional quality with the snowy peaks of the Sierra as a constant backdrop. The town has a great atmosphere, allowing non-biking family and friends to enjoy the weekend while riders take to the trails.
There is a huge range of accommodation in the town and its surrounding area to fit every budget. In Winter it plays host to skiers and snowboarders visiting the ski resort of Prado Llano while in Spring, Summer and Autumn the town welcomes bikers, hikers and outdoor enthusiasts of all types. In 2018, through the efforts of many local groups including the race committee, we managed to have the BTT Centro project approved and Guejar Sierra is now home to kilometres of official registered bike trail.
