The road to the summit, located within the Regional Park Cuenca Alta del Manzanares, is gravel, rocky and bumpy. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo or a fear of landslides. This pretty narrow road can be closed anytime due to snow and ice. It’s usually impassable from November to March. The road is difficult and it’s a nightmare in the wet or dark (or both). There is little room for error on this road. 4x4 vehicle required the last part of the climb.
