The truth is I'm horrendously out of shape (I mean horrendously)! And I'd been telling myself for a while now that I love hikes but I'm too out of shape right now. Well, I did it anyway. It was definitely hard near the end there, I was really truly ready for it to be over a good 20 minutes before we were officially done. BUT I made it!
Anyway, this was an awesome hike (Caminito Del Ray), due to the history behind it (and some good company too between the AirBnb guide and fellow hikers that were in our group). The history was..... that this path was actually a fairly crazy walkway that was originally built along the mountainside to provide workers in the area the ability to transport certain materials and stuff between two areas.
This path was originally built between 1901-1905 (it was finished in 1905)!!! It deteriorated quite badly over the years, yet even when it wasn't being used for workers anymore, folks would hike it anyway. The path was finally closed when there were a few fatalities, but the issue is that closed or not, folks would STTILL go in and hike it (and then post it on youtube too). So they finally redid it in 2015 so that it was safe for us all! I won't lie, the daredevil in me was so intrigued about the path before the renovation - definitely my kind of thing (but in this case, probably would have been too crazy of a stunt, even for me)!
