The GR247 circumnavigates the Cazorla National Park, some 450km of ancient trails used since the Romans fought the Carthaginians for control of these rich and fertile lands. The mountains are high and rugged, the limestone constantly eroded by the rains, shattered by the frost, and cracked by the heat. The last ice age left a unique bio-sphere where nordic pines still flourish in the labyrinthine valleys and the high tundra is home to unique species of flora and fauna in Spain`s greatest expanse of wilderness. These rarely travelled single tracks are not groomed or maintained, and no shuttle buses give you a free pass to the top. The trails we ride down, we also ride up, sometimes with a little portage, but never in a van.
