Here’s a video that I came across a week or so back and forgot about, but Carl was kind enough to remind me of it earlier today. It’s a first person perspective of a couple of hikers exploring the El Caminito del Rey in Spain. The name means “The King’s Pathway”, and the trail offers access to a popular climbing location, but just getting there is part of the adventure, as you’ll see.

Cool video. The trail’s condition sucks. I would probably have to be clipped on the ropes. I don’t trust my rail walking skills that much–definitely gave me a few gasps along the way. To bad people don’t show this perspective with all trails–then we would know what was in store–that would ruin part of the experience though.
Yep, it’s a cool perspective for a wild trail. The video works well for this one, but you’re right, I wouldn’t want to see every trail that way.
The Wikipedia article mentions that there are now ropes in place to clip into, which would make me feel safer, but it’s still a scary little trail.
What’s the music?
No idea, but it’s kind of catch huh?
