Overview

 
South Ridge of La Gorra
South ridge

La Gorra ("the cap") is an small but interesting peak of Bardenas and it's a very good option walking a longer route from Piskerra or Rallón.

It's possible walking a shorter route from the track Arguedas-Carcastillo but in my opinion it's better a longer route that includes Piskerra from its normal trailhead.

Getting There

 
La Gorra
 

Arguedas:
-From North: from Pamplona take AP-15 in direction to Tudela and take the exit of Arguedas-Valtierra some km before of Tudela.
-From South: go to Navarra in direction to Tudela and follow the AP-15 to the exit of Arguedas-Valtierra.

-In Arguedas you must take the narrow road signalled as “Bardenas Reales” in the road in direction to Tudela. After the headquarters the last part is a forest track to Castildeterra, the beautiful small peak. After that you must follow the track for 5 km to a point near Cabaña de Piskerra or peak Rallon to park.

Red Tape

-The Bardenas is a Natural Park with rules. Normally you can read the signals about it.
-Some of the areas in Bardena Blanca are signalled as Zona Militar. Prohibido el Paso (Military zone, forbidden pass). It’s very advisable to respect the area if you don't want to die for a shot of any airplane. Be careful with it.
-Driving by car: after a recent rain (not very frequent in this desert) it's not advisable to drive across the tracks of Bardenas with a normal car, in this case is advisable the use of 4x4.
