Collado de la Mina
Collado de la Mina is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.024m (6,640ft) above the sea level, located in southern Spain, in the province of Granada, Andalusia.
The road to the summit, located in the Parque Natural Sierra de Baza, in the northern foothills of the Sierra Nevada, is gravel. It’s an old mine road. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. Expect very harsh winters. Near the summit there’s a mountain lodge called Refugio Prados del Rey. Along the way it’s possible to observe the vegetation and the large damp high mountain meadows dotted with enormous hundred-year- old pine trees.
