The Almanzora region has countless possibilities to make routes in contact with nature. Among them are the long-distance trails, the so-called -GR- and the Small Route -PR-, which cross towns and mountains, rivers and forests, continue their journey through other regions. On the way there are ancient forests, ancient villages, natural monuments, rivers of permanent water, and endemic species of flora and fauna.

The route of the greenway can be started in Zurgena, from the old railway station, abandoned on January 1, 1985. Its exemplary restoration allows today to celebrate all kinds of cultural events. From here you can start the route to Hijate, where we will finish it.

The trail starts at La Alfoquía and goes through the towns of La Cueva and San Roque, leaving on the left the river and the town of Arboleas, to which both neighborhoods belong. The road continues to the Apeadro, La Cinta, and reaches Almanzora. In this locality we find the Palace of the Marquises of Almanzora. From here the route of the road leads us towards Cantoria, door of the marble villages. It is the old railway station, current headquarters of the Rural Development Group of Almanzora after its restoration.

From Cantoria we start towards Fines passing through El Llano and Cortijos Altos. From Fines we reach Olula del Río, another town very marked by its development around the marble industry. The old railway station of Olula is located next to the A-334 road.

From Olula, the road continues to the Purchena Station, and then it goes towards Purchena next to the junction that goes up to Somontín and Urrácal. From Purchena, the road leaves for Armuña to reach the Tíjola Station. Following the track we reach the metal bridge over the Rambla de Higueral, until we reach Serón, where one of the most interesting points of the whole route is located: the industrial architecture inherited from the mining splendor.

From here you can continue the journey following the old railway line through neighborhoods like Los Zoilos, La Estación, Los Padillas, to Hijate Station, nestled in a large cereal plain reminiscent of the landscape of La Mancha. Here we will finish the visit.
