Hikers enjoy endless possibilities in the Region of Murcia. It is possible to walk for hours along the old miners' and fishermen's paths along the coast, between and Portmán, Cartagena and the Bay of Mazarrón, or in the Natural Park of Calnegre and Cabo Cope, accompanied by the always-pleasant sight of an infinite blue sea.
Inland, the Sierra Espuña mountain range and those of La Pila and Lavia offer interesting routes and pine forests dense enough to protect hikers from the summer heat.
Another hiking option is to follow the G.R. 7 trail, which crosses the north of the region, wending from Pinoso (Alicante) through vineyard plains in Jumilla into the municipality of Calasparra, and then into the Moratalla mountain range. After crossing the limestone-rich locality of Calar de la Santa and the Rambla de la Rogativa ravine, the trail enters the province of Granada through the municipality of Puebla de Don Fadrique.
Near the city of Murcia, the natural park of the Valle and Carrascoy offers visitors a multitude of trails for this activity.
The Region of Murcia boasts more than 100 trails approved by the Mountaineering Federation of the Region of Murcia (FMRM). The local ones (SL) are less than 10 km, the short-distance trails range from 10 to 50 km, and the long-distance trails (GR) are longer than 50 km.
