Tips

A tener en cuenta: tienes que reservar los tickets para caminar por este sendero. Puede reservar tu billete aquí: https://reservas.caminitodelrey.info/?lang=en La entrada es de 10 euros por persona. El Caminito del Rey fue una vez conocido como el sendero más peligroso de España. Era un sendero conocido y transcurrido solo por los amantes de la escalada en roca. Hoy en día el sendero ha sido restaurado en gran medida y es uno de las rutas más populares y bonitas de España. El sendero sigue el desfiladero de Gaitanes en El Chorro. Es un paseo espectacular sobre puentes de madera al lado de los acantilados. Se recomienda optar por esta ruta si eres un excursionista aventurero y experimentado. Con las renovaciones recientes es mucho más seguro, sin embargo, necesitas usar casco. No se permiten niños menores de 8 años en el camino. El sendero presenta un bosque precioso, las aguas cristalinas del río y la emoción de estar suspendido en el aire. Asegúrate de reservar con anticipación ya que las entradas se agotan.

Amazing scenery. A bit windy in January but certainly well maintained and worth for a trip.

It's beautiful, but a little too 'Disney' for me. It's pretty much an amusement park now with quite a bit of waiting and very busy boardwalk. So many people. While the drops are steep, it's fenced off everywhere, so it's not dangerous at all. The legend is definitely more dangerous than the walk itself today. We didn't have advance tickets, we walked to the entrance (it's a path through the woods, 2 km walk) arriving at 8am, and we were 18th in line. 5 star views and a 2 star hiking experience.

Gorgeous hike along a man-made foot path along the canyon walls. Be sure to buy tickets in advance because there is a limit to how many people can do the trail per hour. They will not let you in if you don't have a ticket! I would not consider this a hard trail. If anything makes it difficult, it's the heat. Bring water!

Before I start, a warning... El Caminito de Rey is seasonal. I guess you can check it online, not sure. another reviewer mentioned buying tickets before hand. it appears that there might be a ticket line. Now, the trail. The trail is nice and easy. the only part I would consider slightly difficult is the section that comes off the road towards the peak and becomes an actual trail. not difficult, but the large smooth rocks may get very slippery if wet. The view at the top is worth it. Just avoid the edges and headgear. The wind was strong enough to make me stumble. Unfortunately, due to my earlier warning I didn't see what I came to see and was very let down for it. But I cannot say it was a bad hike. I got in about 6.5 miles of easy trail with decent views. The area was crowded when I arrived and it is off season. parking may be difficult as the season picks up. if you can manage it, there is a restaurant called "Mirador" that has parking outside of it that would be great parking. There is also a little cafe, right after the bridge that you can take a left at and park on either side of the tunnel. these seem like good kicking off point to me. They both offer easy access to both the entire loop or just Camino de rey. Hope this helps

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.

In the summer, El Caminito del Rey is best enjoyed very early mornings before it become too hot. Very well laid out path, easy enough for children and their grandparents alike.
