A Greenway is an old railroad line that has been rehabilitated as a track for cycle tourism. This proposal of the Ojos Negros Greenway includes detours to get to know elements of great scenic, cultural and gastronomic value that are close to the original route. The Ojos Negros Greenway is the longest in Spain and we propose the following options to customize your trip depending on the number of stages:

What is it like to do the Ojos Negros Greenway by bike?

Doing the Ojos Negros Greenway by bike is one of the cycling experiences that you have to do at least once. 

The original route was an old train track that went down from the Ojos Negros mine to the Mediterranean. It is now mostly paved and is a great way to do something different with the family.

It is an easy and enjoyable route, away from the roads and constantly descending to the sea. The variety of the landscape with constant fruit plantations, bridges and tunnels make it a lot of fun.
