An abandoned walkway, with sections missing or damaged. Access is via ferrata style over rungs starting below the rail bridge. These lead to the dodgiest walk ever. There is a cable running the length of the walk which can be used for safety. A must do.

Sofie Quist 23/May/14 -

Got up at 5am to sneak onto the walkway before workers showed up to lay more planks on the first section. Absolutely fantastic day out! We met a couple of other groups on our way back - no ropes for abseiling so we walked the route twice. Had to play a nice game of 'who can be more stubborn' to convince the workers who had shown up in the mean time that they should let us pass them so we could go down. Unfortunately they seem to be done with their work now - such a shame :(

Excellent day out, lower gorge is easy the whole way, the upper gorge is a bit harder with a lengthy section of walkway missing with no steel girder, but a small rock ledge you can shuffle along. I stepped off the end to have a sizeable section of walkway fall from under me. We didn't do the entire upper gorge, leaving at the bridge.

Awesome! Lower Gorge fully protected. Stunning walk. If you gancy a bit more follow the track at end of lower george for about 1km, until you reach the Upper George. This is even more interesting, no via ferrata except for the gaps in the walkway, some long stretches, that would be a struggle for anyone below 5ft. walkway has completely fallen away just shy of the end and there is no protection. Metal door bars route on other side anyway, forcing you to retrace your steps.

Lower Gorge is NOTHING Compared to the Upper gorge! You can do a lovely round trip: DO the Camino Lower Gorge and follow the path after all the way round to the Upper, go to the dead end, come back cross the Upper gorge bridge and go back via the Tunnels. An excellent day out! No roped leading is essential as stated elsewhere.

Very nearly turned back when I first saw it, but was persuaded :-D and its so worth it!

Brilliant day, Lower gorge lunch at the farm & a walk through the valley to the upper walkway - in many ways better than lower as canyon is narrower. Returned through tunnels today then did the Lower gorge return back from Los Cotos 2 days later & abbed off end as got dark.

Climbing down the gorge after the initial via ferrata and trying to cross the fast flowing river, then scrambling up the other side of the gorge to end up walking back throught the railway tunnels, takes about 3 hours, and pushes the grade up a bit, but sooooooooooo much fun its unbelievable, do it without a guide and it feels like a true adventure, getting across the river is a real problem solver (hint) head up stream if in doubt
