Our local mountain is called Mogote and situated right next to Algodonales. We know where all the best trails are on this mountain and so will lead you up, over the top and back down into the village of Algodonales for refreshments afterwards. Normally the hike will take 3 hours to complete and usually we pass very few people on the mountain, especially on week days. It's possible to get very close to low flying vultures here and more often than not we spot wild deer when on the hill.
EL CAMPO LOOP TOUR WITH VIA VERDE
50 euros per person / 40-60 kilometres
this gorgeous guided ebike tour starting in Algodonales, follows the Guadalete river just west of the village, through rolling but easy pine forest tracks and eventually meeting the Via Verde de la Sierra a few kilometers west of the Coripe mid station. After passing through several old railway tunnels we meet the Coripe mid station and take a break at the bar. At this point, we can leave the Via Verde and finish by mountain roads, eventually completing a 40km version of the tour. Or, from here we can continue on the the Via Verde passing several more tunnels, typical Andalucian countryside, cruising further along the easy flat track.

this guided ebike tour starting in Algodonales, can be tailored to take in a technical traverse of the Mogote mountain on the west side, passing through forest trails, eventually meeting the gravel roads that wind up the mountain, first stopping at the westerly paraglider take off "Poniente". This is one of three launch sites for paraglider pilots that we visit. We then head east along the gravel road, further up the 900m mountain, past the northerly take off which leads us to the south east side of the mountain to the "Lavante" take off point. From September through to May, this area is popular with paragliding and we stop to watch the launches from the mountain and enjoy views of the Sierras. On a clear day its possible to see the snow capped Sierra Nevada range from here. Vultures are thermalling here all days and the down hill ride is a blast.
