La Palma
is a paradise for hiking, not only because of its incredible variety of distinct landscapes, but also because of its closely-woven, well-signposted network of hiking paths.
 
Many of them are the former foot routes linking the various parts of the municipality; by going hiking, you can enjoy the beauty and variety of local landscapes, the mild climate, and the continuing presence of country life, which upholds traditions without sacrificing the benefits of progress.
 
For safety, the usual precautions for hikers should be borne in mind. Though they may seem obvious, please remember the following:
 
-          Check weather forecasts before setting off.
 
-          Don’t hike alone; tell someone where you are going, and your expected time of arrival.
 
-          Carry a small rucksack with warm clothing, a waterproof, food, and plenty of water.
 
-          Don’t forget such basic things as: a hat, sun block, and sun glasses.
 
-          Take a mobile phone with you with a charged battery, a map, and if possible, a compass. They are almost never used, but when needed are invaluable.
 
-          Wear appropriate clothing and footwear: trekking boots or shoes (avoid trainers) are essential.

The Camino Beltrán is encompassed within the group of Local Paths (SL), being less than 10 Km in length. Local paths connect higher graded routes, or enable short, local loops to be done.

The importance of this path is that it connects the tourist zone of Los Cancajos with the Montaña de la Breña, in this way providing a route through the southern part of the municipality. Once there, it can be linked to the PR-18.1 or GR-130. For the return descent to Los Cancajos, the PR-18.1 can also be used. Read more
