Sierra de Baza. Ascent of Santa Barbara

Time: 6 h

We shall take the national road along a strech of about 15 km.

Which goes from Guadix to Baza. Then we take a forest track wich branches off to the right of the road.

Walking on along this track, and leaving behind a junction on the left, we shall arrive at a farmhouse where there is a camping – site.

The track leads to a town, Collado de Narváez, from where, walking up on towards the east, we shall reach the top in a hour.

Santa Barbara´s peak in the highest in Sierra de Baza. Its ascent requires choosing the most comfortable track, in many ocassions far from the shortest lane to the top.
