The pathway is located about 60 miles south of Cordoba and just 3 miles from the small town of El Chorro.Parking is available very near the start of the site from unofficial sites from around €4. Tickets are available at the starting point for €10. Total walk length is 5 km and is fairly easy. A bus is available for the return trip for around €1.70 and is well worth it.
