Senderismo en Granada is a platform for posting walks and hikes in the vicinity of Granada in Andalucia Spain. The walks could be at any time of the year. The walks are in or very near the province of Granada most of them are within an hour or so's drive of the city of Granada. It is totally free and there is no membership or fees.
Senderismo means hiking in Spanish. Many of the participants tend to be from the city of Granada. The language used for posting the walks and the walk information is either English or Spanish.
There is no set level of difficulty. You should read the description of each walk to see if it is suitable for you. A walk could be as short as 100 metres or as long as 100km requiring crampons and breathing aparatus. Read the description!
Each walk has a walk leader. The walk leader is normally the person who posts the walk. The walk leader must make a correct description of the proposed walk in the post. The walk leader must know the route. Anyone can post walks.
The walks should be published as a POST in the FACEBOOK GROUP.
Anyone can post a walk. The walks must be posted as a POST in the facebook group. The walk must contain a good description with length, duration, meeting point, likely terrain, the amount of uphill etc.
This group has as little bureaucracy as possible. Only good natured pleasant people are allowed. To come on any walk you must first read the disclaimer.
Senderismo en Granada is a dog friendly group. Walks by default allow dogs. However, a group leader can ban individual dogs for bad behaviour or to require that certain dogs wear a muzzle if they are aggressive to other dogs or people. A group leader could have a dog free walk only in exceptional circumstances where there is a specific good reason why dogs should not be allowed.
There is a growing collection of really good walks. You can find them in the walks list. We are in the process of publishing all our walks on the WALKS LIST Most of the walks have been processed so the walk time is correct. We don't allow badly written walks to be published but if you look at the walk info page and see the word in grey saying "certified" You can be certain that this walk has been actually walked and at the time of walking it is fully OK to download and do yourself. Since September 2022 we have been adding photos and videos to the walks.
The group was started in October 2021 by David Bravo Salamanca. The number of people in the facebook group has grown very fast.
There is no real leader of the group. If you do want to speak to someone then go to the facebook group and send a messenger message to Sarah or John. They are admins
Some of the people who lead walks are worried that if someone has an accident they could be held responsible. Just to make sure there is no doubt, anyone who goes on a walk must first read the DISCLAIMER.
