|By the information panel, you find a track
with white arrows (40 m). Lined by agaves and
cactuses the track bends
left and opens up a view to the sea. Sierra
del Gabo de Gata rises on your right. At the first crossroads (10min) (5 m)and also at the second (14min) (-5 m), go straight ahead. The route
approaches the beach
of Genoveses. When you meet
another track (18min) (5 m), do not cross it, but keep right and make
for the parking place. By the parking place
(21min) (5 m), continue on the track that bends left.
When the track forks (37min) (10 m), go right. In a minute, you come
to a junction. Make for the Morrón de los Genoveses rising on your
left. On your way, you enjoy beautiful views
to the bay of
Genoveses and to the open
top (46min) (75 m) affords a splendid panorama of the coast
line with capes and villages.
Return to the junction (54min) (15 m) and continue straight ahead. The
path ascends to the crest of the cliff (56min) (40 m) and continues to
the right accompanied by gorgeous seaviews. When a path marked with
piles of stones forks off left (1h06min) (60 m), you can visit an outer
cliff, but the route continues straight ahead. When the path
becomes unclear (1h26min) (75 m), descend to a path that runs some 15
meters below (1h29min) (60 m) and continue to the left. Sierra
del Gabo de Gata stands now in front of you. The path goes
gently downhill through an agave woods to a wide sand trail (1h35min) (45 m).
Follow it to the right. The trail turns into a path that takes you to a
track starting by two white buildings (1h39min) (20 m).
Walk along the track to a sand road (1h43min) (25 m), turn right, and
take the path by the road. A track forks off to the right (1h49min)
m) and turns into a path. Los
Frailes emerge in front of you. Follow this path through fields to a track,
and turn left to the parking place (2h01min) (5 m). Return along the
familiar track back to the beginning of the route (2h24min).
