Offers Sierra Nevada Bike Park

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.

Travel information


Descent | Down Hill

Downhill at high speed on a tour with difficulties and obstacles like logs, rocks, jumps, etc. You can go down paths of all levels. And if you master this mode, you can also access the official circuits of the World Cup Mountain Bike.


It is the most popular mountain biking discipline and also the least extreme amongst the other forms. XC racing is also an Olympic discipline which involves competitors racing from point-to-point through defined trail sections in the fastest time possible. XC trails can range from open fire roads to winding narrow single-tracks that will test the rider’s endurance and technical handling skills.


Route Veleta

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.
