A story has appeared on the Desnivel web site
stating that access to the main gorge at El Chorro (photo) is now in jeopardy. The National Park was involved in a law suit after a train operator objected to people walking along the track (apparently a family with a pram had been spotted) and the National Park have reacted to this by banning access along the railway tracks. Police have been preventing access and notices claiming large fines of more than 6000 Euros for anyone found on the railway line have been put in place.
This all happened a few weeks ago and after
initial police diligence, the situation seems to be back as it always was. If you are concerned then all the major areas can be reached by a safe route around the initial tunnel (under Sector Luna) which was the only tunnel the police were checking anyway.
