The road to the summit, located in the Sierra Nevada National Park, is unpaved. Recommended from late spring to early fall, since you´ll go through mountain roads where there is often snow. Starting from GR-5104 Road, near the village of Jérez del Marquesado, the road is 9.5 km (5.90 mile) long.

This is a maintained road where a high clearance 2WD vehicle is able to travel safely at low speeds. Along the way you can enjoy magnificent views. This mountain cabin provides shelter against the elements.
