Description
Waypoints (0)

La ruta del Monte o Pico de Abantos es una excursión imprescindible si se quiere disfrutar de plena sierra muy cerca de la capital madrileña. Esta ruta se llama así por la multitud de aves de esta especie que se pueden ver en esta zona. A pesar de que la ruta comienza en la preciosa localidad de San Lorenzo del Escorial, la cara oeste de este monte pertenece a la provincia de Ávila. Desde la mayor parte del recorrido las vistas son impresionantes y mirando al norte se puede disfrutar del Valle Cuelgamuros, famoso por encontrarse allí el histórico Valle de los Caídos. La primera mitad de la ruta es en ascenso por lo que se puede hacer un poco complicada para los excursionistas menos acostumbrados a la montaña, aunque en general es una ruta asequible para todos los públicos.

Más que sendero era ir por la montaña con surcos para reconocer por donde ir

HikingGreat!

Went up the mountain from San Lorenzo de El Escorial at the end of November. There's an oasis with cowbells and a drinking fountain at the top. Incredible views. If you get up there it's certainly worth your while to follow the stone-wall border with Castille-León over the back of the mountain to see the eerie tomb of the dictator in the valley on the other side.

First to Review

It took us about 4-5hours but we were constantly stopping to take pictures and videos, plus we stopped to have a break for about 30min. The first 6-7km is constantly going up. Later you always go down-so you are stopping yourself, which is quite annoying for the rest of 4-5km. We did it on the 1st of November and was it beautiful, the trees around so colorful and it wasn’t too hot. Even quite cold on the peak! Certain points had really beautiful view from the up there. Half day mid-dificult route.
