The longest Greenway in Spain
Discover the route on the map, where to sleep at night and what are the best bikes you can hire to do the Ojos Negros route by bike.
With its 162 km route, the Ojos Negros Greenway is considered the largest in Spain. As it is so long, the route has been divided into two sections: the 92km trail that passes through the province of Teruel; and the 70km route that snakes through the provinces of Castellón and Valencia.
The Valencian greenway makes its way through the beautiful scenery of the valley of the river Palancia. The route follows the disused Sierra Menera mining railway that starts at the high plateau of Barracas and makes its way towards the foothills of Sierra de Javalambre.
Vía Verde de Ojos Negros then gradually descends to the Valencian huerta, the agricultural land lining the shores of the Mediterranean. The difficulty of the route depends on which direction you choose to go. If you travel from Teruel towards Valencia the route is downhill whereas the opposite is an ascent that adds up to a total of 1,400m of altitude.
The path of the greenway is conditioned, and it is very comfortable for cycling. During the trip there are a lot of picnic areas and rest areas, with tables and places for bicycles.
