We already anticipated that the route of the Caminito del Rey is not circular, so you must think about how to return to the starting point to pick up your vehicle. That is why there is a bus that takes you from the south to the north access of the Caminito del Rey.

Sections of the route

  • Reception area
  • Two access areas: the Gaitanejo path and track
  • Visitor’s hut and Gaitanejo reservoir
  • First Canyon (Gaitanejo Gorge)
  • Second Canyon (El Tajo de las Palomas)
  • The Hole Valley
  • Third Canyon (Desfiladero de los Gaitanes)
  • Final stretch. Walkway to exit winch.
  • Caminito del Rey Avenue, path down to El Chorro station.
