Espectacular descenso por el Barranco de Masca. Es un recorrido popular por la posibilidad de continuar por barco hacia Los Gigantes. Para los que puedan, recomiendo volver a subir al pueblo de Masca para disfrutar más de la belleza salvaje de este lugar.
El sendero no está marcado oficialmente pero no tiene pérdida. Bajas o subes. Conviene llevar suficiente agua, protección solar y calzar zapatos adecuados.
La recepción de la señal GPS es irregular.

Spectacular trail through the Masca gorge. Quite popular for the possibility to fetch a boat to Los Gigantes once you arrive to the beach. If you got energy left, I recommend walking up again to Masca, it´s more than rewarding.
The trail is not officially marked but you can´t get lost. It´s either up or down.
In order to take full advantadge of this beautiful trail, its convenient to bring enough water, sun protection and wear firm shoes.
GPS signal in the gorge was sort of irregular.

    Espectacular lugar! Los que piensen hacer esta ruta (ida y vuelta) tener en cuenta que en total llevará unas 6/7 horas... para no llegar de noche, como nos pasó a nosotros :)

    Like Lyz my GPS frequently lost signal so the recorded track strays from the track. The path is mostly easy to find on the way down but harder to find in places on the way back up; keep looking for yellow dot trail markers. The rocks are slippery when wet so take care and there are several ledges 60cm wide with precipitous drops so take care there too. There is a fair amount of scrambling up and down rocks and saw several elderly people incapable of this unaided and not enjoying the walk. The explanatory placards at the start understate the potential dangers.
    The views are stunning and the beach when you arrive has large boulders with a couple of people swimming off the jetty.. we took e hours down (hard on the knees) and 2:45 coming up which we all agreed was easier though views better on way down.
    The drive there is on narrow, windy, scary but barriered roads.
