Outside the Costa del Sol, there are many places inland where it is nice to walk. There are important natural parks, such as the Parque Natural de la Sierra de las Nieves and the Parque Natural de los Montes de Málaga.

This mountain walk takes you through the Montes de Torremolinos, from the Sendero Puertos de Torremolinos, to the Cañada del Lobo. Via the Gran Senda de Malaga and the Camino del Agua you return to Torremolinos along old water channels.

El Caminito del Rey, The King's Path, is an adventurous hiking trail that runs from Alora in Málaga to Campillos through the El Chorro gorge. Located in a unique natural environment, the trail extends between two gorges, canyons and a large valley. It can and may only be done from the north side to the south side.
