El Brosque (Archidona) Mountain Bike Trail (MB)
There are some stunning nature sites very close to the old Town of Archidona. This route allow us to see some of the most important o these sites like the Marín Stream, the old mines in Los Canterones, the section of the Guadalhorce River that flows through the village Huertas del Río and the natural beauty spot El Brosque, which this route is named after. Here the sinkholes (dolines) were made by dissolution of the gypsum beds, so the site is of great geological interest.
