More like 3.5 stars. Overall, the hike wasn't bad. The trail was very rocky and we had to focus a lot on footing. For the first hour, the sights we're beautiful. The sights for the remaining three hours were still good but not as spectacular as all the other trails.

Die Wege sind alle toll beschriftet und wirklich gut ausgebaut. Da steckt ganz viel Arbeit dahinter. Hier war es streckenweise sehr anstrengend zu gehen durch die Gegebenheiten. Ausblick nach san Sebastian sehr schön
