There are lots of paths and walking/cycling routes to explore around Pinos and the surrounding countryside. We will start to share a few with you here on our website using Wikloc. There are 100’s of trails available to download and enjoy on Wikloc for the Lecrin Valley and surrounding area so check it out.
If you’d like to hire a good quality bike whilst you are here to explore the area then contact Alpujarra Bikes based in Bubion.
(1) Sendero del Jabali (Wild Boar Trail) – Our first one is a 2/2.5 hour walk starting and ending at the Lavadero at the top of Pinos on the Juncal road (by the Sportsground). This is also the starting point for the popular walk up to the Ermita. Visit Wikiloc for more information. There is an additional loop you can tag on to extend the walk/mtb ride and this can also be found here on Wikiloc thanks to Fernan2g. We also have a video clip from a recent ride by Phil, Roy, Geoff & Jesus – click here to view on YouTube.
The full 14km MTB/BTT trail can be found here on Wikloc:

(2) The walk up to the Ermita Cristo del Zapato – Cerro Chinchirilla is a really popular walk and visitors come from far and wide to hike up to the Ermita and enjoy the stunning views. Click here for more info. from WikilocTrails: Ermita Cristo del Zapato – Cerro Chinchirilla
(3) There is a pleasant circular walk from Casa Molino which follows part of the route up to the Ermita but branches off to the left at the black water pipe and takes you through the pine trees to a round water deposit. You follow the path down to the side of the deposit and it will bring you back to the village via the main road & local track.
