One of a couple missing sections along the lesser known second part of El Camino Del Rey
Recently L. Vincent from New Zealand left a comment on one of the most popular posts on the site, Photos To El Caminito Del Rey. He let me know that I never actually completed the hike, that really I only went about half way. This came as a surprise to me because I've read a lot about El Camino, and spoken to a lot of people about it, but I'd never heard of this second part. I asked him some questions about it and if he had any photos to share, and he was happy to offer. Below are some of the photos I handpicked from his set, as well as his answers to my questions about the trip through the ENTIRE El Camino Del Rey.

A screen cap from the 1965 movie Von Ryan's express showing El Caminito Del Rey
One of the most popular posts on this site has been about a dangerous hike in Southern Spain known as El Caminito Del Rey. Although El Caminito Del Rey has become a bit of an internet sensation in recent times, it's not well known that it was featured in the movie "Von Ryan's Express" back in 1965. Here is a clip from the movie showing the upper path in pretty good shape before it was torn down.

One of several missing sections on the aging El Caminito Del Rey Walkway
You may have read the article I published back in May about this El Camino Del Rey Hike. I just discovered that this hike is not going to be around much longer, at least not in its current "adventurous" state. If it sounds appealing, you better hurry up and get to Spain

The Path of El Camino Del Rey Cuts Off
Some say its the most dangerous hike in the world, El Caminito Del Rey (also known as El Camino Del Rey) is definetely the most thrilling hike I've ever done. The path was originally constructed in 1905 for workers of a hydro eletric dam set up in the cliffs of El Choro. Since then, the path has deteriorated and is now only for the adventurous. The government of Spain allocated 7 million euros for the restoration of El Camino Del Rey in 2006, however its clear that this has not been spent yet.
