How to reach Rabacal hiking trails
You will need to reach by car the indicated location on this map. Here you will find a large area where you can park your car. The beginning of the trail is easily noticeable and it is marked by a large sign; you will notice a ramp and a van that is usually parked behind.
You will not be able to proceed further by car, but you have a choice: to take a van to the mountain hut or to walk towards the hut. The walk down is not a huge problem, but for most the way back uphill after several hours of walking is quite a challenge.

At the top of the mountain range, where you will park your car, it may be very cold and windy (depending on the time of year), but just after a few hundred meters after you start the walk, the temperature rises sharply and weather conditions become much more pleasant.
