The Bosques del Sur Trail - GR 247 is the largest circular trail, that connects emblematic areas of this Biosphere Reserve located in the northeast of the province of Jaén.

It also has 3 optional paths, each with two sections, - identified with a “v” on the map - to help you subdivide the route and make one that is adapted to your interests and the time available to do the walk.

The trail will take you to the sources of the Guadalquivir and Segura rivers, and you can explore the mosaic of landscapes of these mountains: high mountain peaks, castles, forests, rivers and waterfalls, traditional paths, plateaus, towns and villages that are still inhabited, historic areas, olive orchard groves.

A great route to discover the flight of the bearded vulture, the cleanest waters, conversation with the wandering shepherds, the way of life in the mountain villages…, a collection of experiences and the authenticity of the largest mountains of Andalusia await you along this path.

The landscapes filled with memory are waiting for the steps and the look of complicity of walkers in one of the most interesting nature areas in southern Europe.
