The walk starts off innocently enough, meandering along the banks of the Rio Cares. The path soon morphs into the old hydroelectric maintenance track, which is carved into the cliff face. You soon gain altitude and can see the Cares River’s unrelenting erosion of limestone that helped form the gorge. 

Know Before You Go

The views are beautiful. The trek takes about eight hours to the end and back. Sensible footwear is a must along with clothing to suit the weather. Pack lunch and water as well as walking poles to steady yourself along the path .
