A beautiful walk along long-distance footpaths and woodland tracks to Barranco de Valle Gran Rey.
Walk through two lovely valleys (barrancos), past the pottery-making village of El Cercado, then onward to one of the most beautiful valleys on the island - Barranco de Valle Gran Rey, full of terraced farms and palm trees. You have the option to stop for lunch in Las Hayas, at a restaurant where they serve traditional Canarian dishes. From here begin your descent through lush surroundings full of palm trees, junipers, heather, and bay laurels. After approximately 6 hours walking, traverse Valle de Los Loros to reach Vallehermoso.
The descent on the last section is long and sometimes steep - it may be too exposed if you have a fear of heights or suffer from vertigo. It can be avoided by choosing the alternate route (shortcut) at way point 26, this takes you directly to Vallehermoso.
