Hiking guide book/sites/app?

I might like to go on a few day hikes/walks/senderismo during the two weeks in Andalucia that I'm planning for November. (5-12 mile loops, out-and-backs, or point-to-point with transit/taxi options to return.)

The most up-to-date book I've found is from 2006—not great, and googling for it has returned pages on pages of clickbait. Any leads on trustworthy info would be much appreciated!

I use the AllTrails app. You can look at a map and it shows trails in that vicinity, and you can filter by distance or other factors. Click on a specific trail and it has detailed maps and other info.

Haven’t used it in Spain but I just looked and there’s plenty on there in Andalucia.

Hmm...the computer seems to have eaten my first reply to this thread, so I'm trying again. The site that seems to have the largest number of posted GPX trails for Spain, more than 14 million, is Wikiloc.com. Most of the posters are Spanish, so it helps to open it in Chrome for the auto-translate feature. Many of the posted tracks have detailed descriptions as well as photos. If you zoom in on the map, more and more trails will show up. We have details about many of the tracks we've followed in our journals here and here. It's easy to plan a walking trip to any part of Andalucia using Wikiloc. Happy planning!

Thanks all for these tips! (And Mira, I've used AllTrails here, but somehow didn't think to look at it for Europe!)
