This walk takes the less travelled path from Ronda out to the Guadiaro river valley. It explores some of the most unspoilt and peaceful hillside landscapes before dropping sharply down to the Guadiaro river. We then follow a rocky path known as “Mr Henderson’s Way” which undulates above the river banks to Jimera Estacion, where we finish at a local bar.

We head out from Ronda into the southwestern hills, crossing high open pastures and small mountain streams, enjoying stunning views throughout. We descend to the valley of the Guadiaro river and then join "Mr Hendersons' Way. This narrow rocky pathway follows above the river through a picturesque limestone gorge. It is named after the ambitious British financier of the Victorian railway project which cut through the mountains from Algeciras on the southern coast of Spain up to Granada. The railway line still winds through the bottom of the valley - not many trains run each day so they barely disturb the tranquil mountain atmosphere.

This hike is a must. It is a long hike with the most Amazing views and nature. You Will have a great overview over ronda and Will hike through forest, mountains, and along the river. You can hike to a cave and If you are lucky a lot of sheep will cross the paths. It is a must If you like hiking. Our guide Chiara (sorry If I misspelled your name), was super enthousiastic, kind, spoke several languages and we couldn’t wish for more.
