Hiking Monte Bujeo, Tarifa, Spain
This is a truly stunning hike with views in all directions; Tarifa and Valdevaqueros to the East, Gibraltar and Algeciras to the West (with glimpses of the Sierra Nevada on a clear day), and Morocco and Jebel Must to the South.
The route starts at the recreation area of El Bujeo, where it is easy to park. Facing the road from the car park you take the wide path on your right and basically follow it all the way up. As you get closer to the ridge line, there is an easterly summit but you are turning right before the final push up. This right turn takes you through a gate and onto a woodland track, within about 200m you will emerge onto the ridge which takes you to the westerly summit and then down the other side, back to the car park. Google Maps of View Finder would be handy for this hike as the track is not always clearly marked and it’s not a recognised route.
Be wary of maraudering goats…we stopped at the summit for lunch and they were most interested in our sarnies!
