Really enjoyed this walking route. Drove down the dirt road until we decided to rest the car tyres (small city car unlike the 4x4 everyone else has.) The route is extremely straightfoward to follow with small side routes that take you to mining cart tracks,...More

a little know barranco near Guimar. medium difficulty walking, stunning scenery and interesting folklore ("route of fear"). Keep going right to the very end past the old mine and through the brambles to reach the actual end.
