That's seriously bad. My stomach was doing flips!

I've walked that path - although I didn't get very far :biggrin:

It is officially closed because it is crazily dangerous - in fact the path doesn't exist for long segments and bits fall off as you walk along which I found slightly worrying!

Beautiful though (great cycling country BTW - we were on a cycling holiday when we detoured off to see the path)

What's scary about that? I'd do that on my MTB.
I think you'd fall off :biggrin: Seriously.

There is no way of getting to the end without using the safety harness.

The video is less scary than the path (or maybe I'm just a wimp) :biggrin:

I can recommend cycling around the gorge to the end of the path where there is a reservoir.

There is a lovely little hotel there, with a pool that looks out over the reservoir and the path, and serves a mean paella. It was completely empty when we were there (and that was in June)

I've even found a picture of the hotel - brings back happy memories.

If you look around you can see the railway tunnel (complete withe train) - that's where the path ends

There were about 15 of us cycling from Grenada to Seville and 9 of them wimped out of 2 days and stayed on at the hotel as it was so lovely and the village has a station so they could meet us later in Ronda

Bloody wimps
