Hi Ureds, everyone is welcome to join us, nothing formal, no membership, just some lovely people with us and some lovely dogs, so please come along when you get here.

We walk 3 times a week and it is not strenuous, but we do try to walk and have a break with a coffee or beer halfway. Two of the walks are usually done from Caleta, but if you're hiring a car you'll be able to meet us for the inland walks.

Look forward to meeting you.

Cheers Freda

Hi and thanks for the reply, yes we will have a car ( and a map ! ) so all being well we will be able to join you. The wife will be pleased if dogs are around as she will be missing hers no doubt .
I'll keep an eye out on here for updates
Cheers

Hello Matt, I will ask the other walkers if they would like to do it and let you know, please take a note of my email address to contact me. We normally walk in or around Caleta de Fuste or down south, but as i say I will let you know.

I would be interested in a walk in the north of the island if it is reasonably flat - my knees can't do hills anymore unfortunately.  :(

Hi Matt 'n Tamara, I've had a word with some of the walkers and like you Tamara we're all a bit wonky!!! However we have a few people join us from Correlejo and maybe they may be interested, I will email them direct to see and they can get in touch with you through here.

Sorry we're not able to help at this time but maybe a nice steady walk along the harbour would be good, keep your eye on this post and I'll see what we can sort out.

Cheers Freda

hi lovethebeach, no problem at all, but our walks are in public view and we stop at cafe's, so you would need to be dressed for that!!! As I said on a previous thread anyone and everyone is welcome to join us.

Hi Paul, as you enter Las Salinas the road bends to the right the car park is on the road on your right, we'll be waiting on the wall opposite!!!

See you on the 20th

Hi Whispa

Have you ever done on know details of the Gran Valle footpath to Cofete?  Looking on Google Earth, it looks straight forward (apart from the 900ft climb!) but the section where it crosses the mountain ridge looks a bit iffy to me. Is it passable without too much bum nipping?

I wouldn't mind bringing my boots & giving it a try on my next visit
