From Degollada de Peraza to San Sebastian
Long and demanding route through open terrain with no shade. The first section goes slightly downhill with a couple of short ascents, then you do a relaxing section among old terraced farms, passing the abandoned village of Seima. The day ends with a long tough descent in which you walk down into, and back up out of, 3 steep barrancos, where the afternoon heat can be intense. Be sure to take enough drinking water with you.
The path is generally easy to follow. Be aware that in winter there are fewer hours of daylight and on the last section there are no streetlights until you reach the harbour in San Sebastian.
Duration: 5,5 hrs
Way-markings: White/yellow and red/white, stone way-markers
Starting point: vista point at Mirador Degollada de Peraza (200m to right of restaurant)
End of walk: San Sebastian de la Gomera, central square and harbour
Remarks: be sure to take enough drinking water with you, no shade along the route
Some sections with sheer drops, but good path. Option of stopping for a swim along the way at Playa de la Guancha.
