JF-7038 Road

JF-7038: a fabulous road if you are not scared of heights

Located in the province of Jaén, in the eastern part of the autonomous community of Andalusia, in southern Spain, JF-7038 is a very scenic road running through the Segura valley.

The road is fully paved. It’s a narrow mountain road following the course of the Segura River and running through the northern shore of Embalse de Anchuricas-Miller, a reservoir completed in 1957. Under the water is located the old little village of Las Casicas, from which the old church is visible today. The drive is 42.6 km (26.47 miles) long, running west-southeast from JF-7016 road to A63 road, on the border with Albacete province of central Spain, in the southern part of the autonomous community of Castile–La Mancha.

Tucked away in the Sierra de Segura mountain range, within the Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Natural Park, in the eastern and northeastern part of the province of Jaén, the road is pretty challenging, and especially scary along the reservoir section, due its narrowness. The road amongst trees offers stunning views. Expect very little traffic. The road can be accessed year round but may be closed for short periods in winter when the weather is bad.
