Gorgeous trail. We started in San Sebastian and walked east for a few miles and then back down. We found one side trail that allowed us an incredible view from one of the rocky peaks.

unfortunately something went wrong. as I am new to this and being my first solo hike instead of walking a scenic route I ended up walking through the streets and main road. pasaia was amazing though stunning scenery

Walked this beautiful family friendly trail on a summer day. each view more beautiful than the next.

Ended up walking it backwards. There is a bus that will take you to or from the finish in Pasaia. There is a fantastic wooden ship museum at the end. This suggested route is along the cliffs and is less used so can be a little overgrown and there is a dark and wet tunnel halfway.
