Routes & Trails in Cartagena

With a population exceeding 200,000, Cartagena is the second most important city in the region of Murcia. Since its founding in 227 by Hasdrubal, the famous Carthaginian general, the city has become an important geostrategic point, especially for its countless routes and trails, which are currently its greatest ecotourism attraction.

The natural wealth surrounding Cartagena can be seen in its spectacular routes and trails, many of which are ideal for both professional and amateur athletes due to their varying levels of difficulty.

Among the many existing routes and trails, the Calblanque Regional Park route network stands out. It exceeds 2,800 hectares and is characterized by linear paths of medium-low difficulty, where visitors can enjoy the spectacular landscapes full of pine forests.

The La Muela and Cabo Tiñoso Trail is a 6-kilometre circular stretch with a gradient of up to 450 meters and medium difficulty. It is ideal for those who want to admire a natural environment of great ecological beauty. The Agua de Perín Paths also present medium difficulty but are more demanding due to their distance of almost 20 kilometres and slightly steeper slope. Here, hikers can discover the old water routes that supplied the city through interesting rural roads.

Another network of routes and trails with enormous ecotourism appeal is that of the Mar Menor and Calblanque, which crosses the southern area of Calblanque, one of the areas with the greatest natural wealth in the region of Murcia.

There are other routes and trails where tourists and explorers can discover monumental sites of great heritage and natural value, such as the Castillo Atalaya circular route and the Santa Bárbara Path.
