  • RECOMMANDATIONS: Habitual precautions common to hiking in general are listed below. At the risk of sounding obvious, here are some of the most important:
    • Check weather forecasts before setting off to hike.
    • Don´t go alone
    • Tell someone your intended destination and expected time of arrival
    • Carry a small rucksack with warm clothing, waterproofs, food and plenty of water.
    • Don´t forget such simple items as: sun hat, protective cream and sun glasses.
    • Carry a mobile phone with fully-charged battery, a map and, if possible, a compass. They will probably never be used but, when required, are of vital importance.
    • Wear suitable gear, especially footwear: trekking boots or similar are essential, trainers or pumps are to be avoided.
  • AUTRES REMARQUES: Most of the route runs along asphalted lanes or, at least, crosses different roads at various times. Watch out for passing vehicles. The best day to do this section is Sunday, when there is less traffic.
