A short walk in the woods
Posted on 9:32pm Friday 2nd Dec 2011
Step by step, La Palma is improving not just the GR130 but all of its 1000km + of trails and tracks around the island. It's a mammoth task of course, not just clearing and marking the paths but maintaining them as well. And I am happy to say that the vast majority of the work has been completed and our walkers are mightily impressed with the walks on La Palma and how clearly they are marked.
However, it seems that even the smallest paths have not been forgotten and just last week we discovered that the path between Hotel Romantica and the town of Barlovento in the north east of La Palma has been reclaimed.
It is a very short stretch admittedly and only takes around 7 minutes, but it is immensely better than walking on the road! The result is that walkers and hotel guests can enjoy this small woodland trail between the hotel and the GR130 route where it crosses through Barlovento town with its shops and many facilities.
