The early snowfall is rapidly forgotten when the sun comes out and makes winter as good as any season for keen walkers. Today we went out to check one of the local circular walks (Sendero Local) ´Las Acequias de Bérchules´ which follows the ´acequia real´. Apart from gathering the GPS data to draw an accurate map, it allows us to update the walking descriptions we offer our guests. This relatively easy walk (3 hours) alllows you to enjoy the impressive Sierra Nevada hinterland and the stunning views over the Alpujarras valley. This surely is one of the aspects that makes Bérchules so interesting for walkers. Note that the waymarking to leave the village is scarce. Later on you will find a mixture of old yellow-white marker posts as well as new green-white marker posts, indicating the same walk.
