Cablecar

Hi all

Can anyone please confirm that it is allowed to get the cable car one way to the top of the mountain and you can walk back?

Has anyone done this?Is there a clearly defined route back to the bottom?

How long does the walk back take?

Any replies will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi there

Yes

Yes

and.....

about an hour... it's not a "stroll" - far from it - it's quite a challenging trek more like, but fun :)

Certainly one way is available, its 8€ I think, 13€ return. The path looks clear, people often take mountain bikes up and ride back down. Norwegian guests of ours walked it both ways when they booked an over winter stay with us. They missed the mountains. LOL. They did both directions in a little over 4 hours with mooching time at the top.

They had an 11 and 7 years old, and the father carried the toddler in a backpack type harness thing.

There is a board showing the routes at the stations at either end. I don't know if the route itself has signage, once you leave the top.

Yes there is signage on the routes as there are quite a lot of different routes, not just one down.

On their way down, has any walker stumbled across the cave, circa 10,000 BC, with a painting of a bull and horse on a rock?

Never seem to hear much about it, although I know it is a feature of mount Calamorro. Maybe Gary could check it out for us!

Could I jump into this thread to ask, to confirm, that there is a map at the lower cable car station that clearly shows how to find the walking route up? I have, independently, tried to find the way up on many occasions and failed each and every time. A map would help!

LDN, There is a start point from the ain road up to the Pueblo. Walk uphill with Tivoli on your right and continue up for 1km or so, after Benalmadena Golf there is a patterned concrete path goes off to the right and passes under the Autovia, which is way above you .

That may be easier to navigate on the ground than it is looking at it on Google Maps but I would really appreciate a little narrower instructions, if possible, because I'm already getting a sense of deja vu of my previous failed attempts.
