The TransAndalus trail is a route designed specifically for mountain bikes, covering the southernmost region of Spain, Andalusia. Andalusia is a largely natural region, known for many scenic attractions.

Route description

The route does a complete circle through Andalusia, about 2000 kilometers in total.

Trail surface is largely dirt roads, with about 30% paved. 10% of the overall route is singletrack or beach trails. Mostly the travel is through rural countryside, and opportunities to stay in inexpensive hotels (as well as campgrounds) are available in most sections.

GPS Data

See for GPS and KML files. We are working on getting a complete track of the route for mapping and statistics and will post here when available.

Looks like a great trip! How rocky and technical are the dirt roads? Can one do this on a loaded cyclocross bike? (35c tires)

We’ve made three trips on the TransAndalus now and enjoyed every minute on this fantastic route. Our journals and photos are at:
