Spain, La Palma: switchback galore - La Punta to Puerto Tazacorte

S 3+, app. 1h / DH only / paved trail mostly

It's a steep! ancient mule-path leading up/down the cliffs above Puerto Tazacorte beach. Rather exposed than really technically difficult. It’s a popular short walk, so mind the many hikers on their way up. Nose wheel switchbacks are highly recommended…

Start at La Punta terraces and simply follow the signs leading down to the beach a bit further up the road, it's pretty simple to find your way...
