Spanish MTB Trails
Spain has the highest average altitude in Europe and the Sierra de los Filabres is just one of many mountain ranges to rise above 2,000 metres (Calar Alto 2,168 metres). The terrain in the Filabres differs greatly according to altitude and it is not uncommon for the higher peaks to be snow covered for several weeks each year.
Mountain Biking Spain does most of it’s riding between 400 and 1,200 metres, this offers the best selection of terrain and trail conditions for most of the year. We have routes of all grades from beginner to expert which venture deep into the backcountry where it is impracticable for a vehicle to follow. Some of these routes especially the longer ones are both physically and technically demanding all, however, can be ridden at an enjoyable relaxed pace.
We have for some years been exploring other Andalucían mountain biking hot spots and are finally in a position to offer packages to other Spanish destinations. Subscribe to our blog for the latest tours, packages and discount codes.
Access and Routes
Dependant on your individual adventure requirements we can use the Mountain Biking Spain minibus to gain a higher starting point.
Although we do have some “Gran Recorridos” and “Pequeno Recorridos” (way-marked long and short distance footpaths maintained by National and Local Authorities), the majority of our routes remain unmarked.
Off the map, they give bermless, ungroomed “proper mountain biking” utilising access tracks, ancient rights of way, goat trails, hunter’s paths, ridge lines, traverses, singletrack and rock gardens. It’s all totally natural, dry and dusty, steep and fast, loose and rocky and tourist free.
