LA VÍA VERDE DEL NOROESTE

La Vía Verde del Noroeste of the Region of Murcia makes use of the old railway track between Murcia and Caravaca de la Cruz. Along its way there are plenty of varied sceneries where we can find an important piece of the natural and cultural heritage of the Region of Murcia. There are three natural landscapes included in the Red Natura 2000, a great amount of places catalogued as Bien de Interés Cultural (BIC) and the distinction as historical sites of high cultural value of the historical centre of Caravaca de la Cruz, Cehegín and Mula.

The itinerary offers 78 kms of natural road, where we can enjoy a great variety of landscapes, the charming and kindness of the villages through which the Vía goes by, their traditions, culture and gastronomy. On our way we can find several rest areas and a network of hostels (www.alverdes.es) where an appropriate service of lodging, catering and touristic activities is provided. The Northwest Vía Verde lets us enjoy a privileged, full of history environment in a respectful way.

Stage 1. Campus de Espinardo - Alguazas (10,7 km)

Espinardo's university campus is now the starting point of the Vía Verde. From here we pass next to the Cabezo del Aire and go through the only tunnel in this section, which leads us to Ribera de Molina. Until we get to Molina de Segura, the Vía Verde runs parallel to the river Segura, and then takes a 90º turn to the west, which forces us to cross the river and go through its meadow until we arrive to Alguazas. The influence of the river Segura is noted along this first stage, from both the botanical and the animal point of view.

Stage 2. Alguazas - Mula (24,6 km)

We leave the Segura meadow to go through the river Mula basin, an affluent of the former. We are in the driest part of the Vía Verde, sprinkled with little orchards every now and then. The soft slopes of hills, smaller than 190 metres height, dominate the scenery. The Muela de Albudeite, The Barranco de Monroy and the Rambla de Perea, with their great alluviums in the margins, are some of the most important milestones of the landscape. The bridges that go through some of these enclaves are a must to watch local fauna and flora.

Stage 3. Mula - Bullas (21,4 km)

From Mula the route goes into the first mountain zones, adding new attractions to the landscape, the flora and the fauna. Being the steepest stage it also has the greatest number of tunnels and bridges. The four tunnels of this stage, parallel to a RM boxed inside the mountain, let us see Aleppo pine woods and bushes halfway up the mountain, especially when the road, going through the Paraje de la Luz, crosses the RM for the last time.

Stage 4. Bullas - Caravaca de la Cruz (21 km)

In this stage the Vía Verde runs through pine woods and vineyards. This is the most mountainous stage, because we are over 500 meter high, but not the steepest. Once left the 677 m Carrascalejo hill, the route goes into the north part of the Sierra de Burete. In the paraje del Escobar, the Vía opens and the Regadío is its prime example. Through the natural entrance that the valley of the river Argos offers, and passing through the last tunnel of our route, Caravaca de la Cruz, recognised as a "holy place", where every 7 years the jubilee takes place, welcomes us.
