HOLY SHIT MAN! I dunno if I would step foot on that trail, that takes some serious guts, or a safety harness like one of the dudes in the video had. That trail is so fucking narrow and worn down, traversing a 2 inch beam for 5 feet, 500-1000 feet from the ground... insane.

edit: wiki says its 984 feet above the river. also says that the entrances to the trail are actually closed because too many people died trying to walk it, people still sneak onto it though. oh and they budgeted a resoration plan in 2006

As soon as the video began to play I was like, "fuck that", but that's something crazy to see in your lifetime. Stunning, nonetheless.

That is pretty dangerous, but mostly due to deterioration. If they actually maintained it that would be pretty tame, except for people with vertigo I guess. Quite a nice view though.

I live in the province of Malaga and am about 45 minutes away from El Camino del Rey.
Been up there once and it is fucking scary.

The trail is in a place called El Chorro went there last year and picked up some of the best hash I have smoked.

I think someone died rockclimbing there a month or two back.

^^^^^lol ya coming up with the budget was the easy part. Getting people to repair it is the hard part, and prolly what they're still waiting on.

Psh, "safety" is for pussies...

Just kidding.

That trail is way scary. I can honestly say that if I ever somehow ended up there...I'd fucking cry.

I'd do it, but I don't think I could handle those small steel beams he had to cross. If you slip or fall, you're done.

Must be awesome view when you're high though

I think in most of the pole parts they are close enough to a wall so that they can brace themselves against it

Either way, there's no fucking way I would go on that thing even if I had a safety harness, it was completely restored and they had rails.

Just no fucking way.
