Pay attention to the trail! When I read 3 mile easy loop, I expected to hike for about 2 hours with picture taking. I stop a lot, but my pace is usually pretty good. 2 hours was not the case. 4-5 hours later, I rolled into town in the dark and in the fog, drenched in sweat and bleeding. I was following the trail, and after circumventing what a cow blocking the gate, I missed the turn and hiked an extra ways out. By the time I realized I had missed it, I decided to follow the extended loop back to the original trail as it looked like it would be easier. Huge mistake. Low light, low visibility (due to fog), rain, and a lot of slippery rocks to climb over. I regretted my decision once I found myself climbing over boulders and other jagged rocks with what might have been cactus in either side. It was almost impossible to find the trail once I stepped off it. Almost as soon as I found the trail, I was face to face with a glowing set of eyes, probablly a cow, but I wasnt gonna risk it. I backed up and tripped over some rocks going around and lost the trail for a while. So, pay attention to the trail and be smart. It's a tough trail when you mess up.

So, I did not do any planning. Just decided I would go for a hike. I do not recommend hiking this trail late or in low visibility. It is easy to lose the trail at the far points. Thank goodness I had the alltrails app pro version. Old school maps would work as well, but the all trails maps and gps made it alot easier to get back. I had a headlamp, but I was not prepared to camp.

In a way, this is a note to my complacency. I have become accustomed to easy well marked trails, and have not been taking the proper precautions. If my phone had died, it would have been a long, cold, wet night.

Cierto....te encantará!

Great walk up to the rock. Bit steep n places but worth it

Great hike, only complaint is that the wind does get a bit much after a while

Interesting rock formations and landscapes. Beautiful views.

We went on December 27 and enjoyed great weather. After rising above the low hanging fog near the monastery I was able to remove my layers and walk in a t-shirt. I’m not sure why AllTrails describes it as better from April to October.

Personally, I would grade this trail as moderate. The loop itself takes between 1:45 to 2:15 to complete but you will probably end up taking more time taking in the sights. I would give yourself about 3 hours to do it if you start at the monastery.

It’s easy to visit from Barcelona and makes for a nice day trip.

I definitely recommend it.

Very nice track

Be equipped for snow patches

Directions lead to start where there is no parking. Drive on the main road a bit further to find parking or parking under the olive trees on the opposite side of the road. The first 3/4 mile of hike is on a rough concrete road. Then there is a very rocky river crossing. One of us had waterproof boots, the other didn't. We went north on the loop but very soon came to another crossing, impossible without waterproof boots. We turned around and went back to try to take the westward part of the loop but again, a river stopped us almost immediately. Gave it a three star but, really, I have no idea how it might have been if we had been able to continue.

Benaocaz is in Cadiz, not in Caceres.

Benamahoma is not in Caceres, it is in Cadiz.

Sublime.
As humbling and stunning as the Grand Canyon. Super easy to walk, especially with the renovations. If you have the opportunity, do NOT miss this.

Stunning views, impressively engineered cliff side walkway. Final forge spanning bridge is not for the height averse.

Great views from the north stretch of the trail!

This is more of a stroll. The details above must not be correct because there’s no way you gain or lose 1,000 feet of elevation. It’s beautiful though!

Edit: you know what? It’s probably 1,000 feet. My bad.

we went up the south side. very steep and was slippy in parts after heavy rain. didn't make it all the way to the top and coming down was slow and steady. looking at others going up the east side seemed to look easier. not signposted . definitely wear good grip boots, bring hiking sticks if you have them..a jacket for the change in temp...and a phone just in case....

Beautiful walk/hike through olive groves and past old farmhouses on a path paved with stones for most of the way. There is a short section from Deia before reaching the trailhead where the route is on the windy road shared with cars. But once on the trail it is safe and bucolic.

Spectacular views, well worth it!! We caught this trail from Deia exiting in Valldemossa and it was not well marked going this direction. We got “lost” on several occasions and were happy I had All Trails to show us the way. Presumably it is better marked from Valldemossa, and they have a tourism office for maps etc. (not so in Deia) But wouldn’t have missed this hike...gorgeous!

Beautiful view from the top. Like AMAZING. Steps are kind of annoying on the way down. Worth it though.

A pleasant walk with great views over Lanzarote and across to Fuerteventura. Can be windy and chilly on top regardless of weather at sea level.

The trailhead starts at the end of the Avinguda de la trinitat road and climbs rapidly for the first 200 meters to a peak overlooking all of Sitges. The beginning is very scenic. The rest of the walk is marked with red paint markers on rocks and trees and goes through moderate amount of brush. It’s a great hike to escape the city and see Sitges. The last 1.5 miles aren’t as scenic and simply follows a gravel road.

Amazing view of Sitges at the beginning of the trail.

Très belle randonnée avec des vues à couper le souffle. L'application Alltrails m'a été fort utile car sentier pas très bien balisé.

Une belle surprise! J'ai fait la randonnée classique mais j'ai grimpé sur un des versants jusqu'au col.

really nice trail info center at parking and really clear water and easy to follow trail only problem is the amount of people there on the weekends makes it hard to not get pushed off the trail a lot

This was a wonderful hike! The colors of autumn made it even more spectacular!
