Greenway of the Northwest
Guide developed with the sponsorship of

Greenway of the Northwest

 

NOTICE (16/09/2019): The Greenway of the Northwest is cut in several sections by torrential rains. More information>>

The Greenway of the Northwest of the Region of Murcia breathes new life into the old railway line that used to link the capital of the region, Murcia, with the capital of the northwest of Murcia, Caravaca de la Cruz. Today it is a long natural trail, which we travel with a sense of pilgrimage (and pass a lot of disused stations converted into hostels on the way). The journey is one of many contrasts: 76.8 km leaves room for plenty of different landscapes.
 

The route sets off from the historic regional capital, Murcia, immerses itself in the fertile plain watered by the River Segura, before following the River Mula through the lunar landscape of the region’s badlands. After crossing this semi-desert we reach the high lands in the northwest and are spirits are lifted by the verdant pine woods and almond groves that surround enchanting villages. Finally we reach our goal, our heaven, at the holy city of Caravaca de la Vera.
