8 routes 

The Bike Park is experiencing an important transformation this summer with the addition of new descent routes within the MTB options available. Three lifts (a cable-car, a chairlift and a moving carpet) provide access to eight descent runs for all levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced). These routes total more than 37 kilometres and offer a slope of almost 1000 metres on signposted trails, coinciding with winter ski areas. They provide a new way of discovering Sierra Nevada in summer.

* The Montebajo circuit will be closed from August 16 by works

Veleta route

This route begins at an altitude of 3000 metres and, after a first stretch of steep zigzagging, it reaches the first jumps area. Before descending to Borreguiles, there is the option of reaching the “low mountain pass”, which provides access to the lake. From here, you can enjoy impressive views of the Tajos de la Virgen Mountains. From this point to the bottom, the terrain is ideal for gaining speed with wide, safe slopes and a second line of jumps. This route can also continue along the river.

Montebajo route

This is the setting of the BTT descent competition thanks to it boasting a large part of the course for the MTB World Championship, which was hosted at Sierra Nevada in 2000. After a quick first stretch, the route turns 90º on the wood slope that surrounds the pylon of the Monachil chair lift, and then opens out to jumps and the technical area of the route centred round a grouping of “trail” rocks. From there, the route picks up speed to Pradollano.
