A rough and bumpy road to Pico de los Reales

Located within the Natural Park Los Reales de Sierra Bermeja, in the Sierra Bermeja mountain range, in the comarca of the Costa del Sol, the road to reach the summit is a dead end and it’s all on tarmac, although in places that tarmac is in appalling condition, with deep pot holes.

The summit hosts antennas and a communication tower. The final part of the climb has no traffic at all. At the top of the summit there is a belvedere. From Estepona, this is a very hard climb, with 21,9km at 6,5%, including some very nasty ramps of up to 20% in the early running.
