The route: One of our favourites.
This route offers everything that a walker or a mountain trail runner could wish for: plenty of kilometres, gradients, views, peace and quiet. The only drawback is that there are unavoidable sections on tarmac at times.
The starting point is in Guinate. Take the path marked Camino Natural de Órzola a Playa Blanca. Follow these signs, and during the second stretch of tarmac, leave the signposted route as it bends to the right where there are several signs, and then turn left uphill.
After the last house in the village of Ye, head up a steep hill on the right. When the path starts to bend back to the road, take the track on the right and you’ll soon see Guinate from up high and a trail that heads back down to the village.
From this point, climb up through a wide valley to the Fuentes de Gallo springs (usually water-less) and enjoy the impressive views over the Chinijo Archipelago.
After arriving at Máguez on tarmac, cross the village and you’ll find the Camino Natural de Órzola a Playa Blanca path once more which will take you back to the starting point.
|Best feature: Fulfilling route with lots to see.|
