Route to Pico del Nevero
Pico del Nevero

We leave at 9am, because if you arrive later you run the risk of not finding a place. The beginning of the route is on the other side of the road, not to be confused with the parking fence, for a cattle crossing and that a steep slope (can be hard) is soon seen towards the Nevero and the “crest” that goes towards he Peñalara or the Blowout.


Towards the Pico del Nevero

The road is wide and you always have a fence on the left. Keep in mind that at the beginning the track intersects with the diversion to the Lagunillas Recreation Area, also to the left and you have to pass by. We always liked this route because it is short, it has beautiful views, it is good to remove the monkey and also allows you to be back in the parking lot soon.

Lozoya views

As you ascend the road narrows and begins to see all the Lozoya Valley and the entire Sierra de Guadarrama. If you are lucky, you can see the classic sea of ​​clouds in the mountains, if not, you will have beautiful views of the mountains and peaks such as ElCabezas de Hierro and later the Peñalara or LaMaliciosa among others.

Guadarrama was one of the most important places of the Spanish Civil War, since in places like this it is possible to see trenches, bunkers, forts and multiple scars of war. Today there are quite a few remains of the infrastructure built by the National side.

Top of the Pico del Nevero

Around the top of the Pico del Nevero there are already many remains of the Civil War and a great landmark that marks the highest point of the route. Shortly before reaching the top it is easy to see cattle ranching, since the absence of mountain ridges and how flat the top makes it easy for cattle to get here.
