On Saturday we will explore the stunning Sierra del Dragón or Siete Picos. We will start the hike at Puerto de Navacerrada and from there, we will reach the backbone of the Dragon. We will need to walk calmly to prevent him from waking up after centuries of deep sleep. Then we will advance down the ridge, touching and climbing all possible bones, even the further away Majalasna peak, the bone tail.


From Puerto de Navacerrada to the 7th Peak, or Somontano, it will be an easy, but continuous uphill hike. Then, depending what the group decides, we can either walk along the side of the ridge through all the peaks until 1st Peak (Majalasna Peak) or, for those willing to climb up a little bit, we can also try to climb every single one of the Seven Peaks :)


It is not a very difficult hike, but it won´t be easy either. We will be walking for 5-6 hours and climbing some of the peaks, which can be tiring.

And on our way back we will enjoy stunning views over the Fuenfria and Valsais valleys and forests as we will follow the renowned Schmidt Trail, taking us back to the Navacerrada mountain port safe and sound!

Weather is going to be beautiful for hiking up there: sunny and between 5 - 10 Celsius.
