Made a beautiful tour from Benalmadena and through Fuengirola to Alahaurin and back through Mijas and the cerro del moro. You can see from afar all the antennas on top of the mountain and you wonder how you get there. Just outside Mijas the climb starts and from there it is 600 hm and 5 km. So the p... read more

Feb 2024. A nice climb, not too long. Total time: 54:49. The view at the end is very nice!! I have taken a route from Melia Torremolinos, up to the start of this final climb quite some traffic. You will find a chain at the start of the climb, as on this track there are no cars allowed. 👍 You might see some hikers and descending bikes on the track so stay right. Tarmac/road is very good, so descending is fine.
Some parts are indicated by my Garmin (830) as 12%…..so be prepared😉

Dec 2023, the last few kilometres are no longer accessible. The road to the antennas is for automated traffic only.
However, you can still turn left and climb to a dirt car park with helicopter pad. Definitely worth it

Dec 2023, de laatste kilometers zijn niet meer toegankelijk. De weg naar de antennes is alleen voor geautomatiseerd verkeer.
Wel kun je nog linksaf en klimmen naar een onverharde parkeerplaats met helicopterplatform. Zeker de moeite waard

Hi, I’m pretty sure that by „no longer accessible” you were talking about the chain at the beginning of the steep final part. I believe cyclists are still allowed to go around it as I’ve been there yesterday and also saw two other cyclists. Two service cars passed us on the way to the antennas and ignored us so I’m pretty sure for cyclists the road is still open.

Made a beautiful tour from Benalmadena and through Fuengirola to Alahaurin and back through Mijas and the cerro del moro. You can see from afar all the antennas on top of the mountain and you wonder how you get there. Just outside Mijas the climb starts and from there it is 600 hm and 5 km. So the profile is not right. It is more like a Mortirolo. Good road, nice views, nature and nothing else. When you arrive at the top you have a view of the whole area. The descent I would take it easy. Missing a turn is not an option here, and there are no guardrails.

Een mooie rondrit gemaakt vanuit Benalmadena en via Fuengirola naar Alahaurin en terug via Mijas en de cerro del moro. Je ziet van ver al de antennes boven op de berg staan en je vraagt je af hoe je daar komt. Net buiten Mijas start de beklimming en van daaruit is het 600 hm en 5 km. Het profiel klopt dus niet. Het is meer een soort Mortirolo. Prima weg, mooie uitzichten, natuur en verder is er niets. Bovengekomen overzie je de hele omgeving. De afdaling zou ik rustig aan doen. Een bochtje missen is geen optie hier en er zijn geen vangrails..
