    A lovely loop - but not easy, either in navigation nor in terrain. Some steep uphill, some rocky and steep downhill, plus some fences to climb too. Park at the cattlegrid. Follow the middle track then leave the track to ...

    An excellent (although quite tough) route, with varied terrain. The first "circle' is easier than the second, so you could make this a shorter walk by just doing the first circle. You would turn right when you meet the t...

    A nice short walk if you don't lose your wedding ring...there is an easy and steady climb on a track followed by a descent through the woods. Follow blobs of blue paint on the section where you leave the track by the thr...

    A tricky route especially the last section but blue paint and cairns helped

    Beautiful walk partly by river but mostly above canyon. Turquoise river with beach to swim. Regret not walking a bit further and turning right across the gorge onto Puente de Los Alemanes. Next time!

    Good trail but misleading as it says it’s a loop which it is not. I made the mistake of not looking at the map before ve...
