The Tunnels Rail Trail

From Coripe to Olvera

This route takes advantage of a rail route that was built in the early 20th century but was never used. It was renovated as a rail trail at the end of the 20th century.

It includes 30 tunnels, the longest almost a kilometre in length. They are equipped with lighting systems but it is a good idea to have lights in case they are not working!

The route also crosses four viaducts, the most spectacular crosses a river at the Peñon de Zaframagon, a rocky mountain that is home to a large colony of Griffon Vultures. The information centre situated in an old station enables us to get to know about the life of these amazing birds.

There are cameras which constantly film the birds so that we can learn more about their routines and raising of the chicks..
