Diversive medium difficult to difficult hike. Some ridge scrambling required.
The Trail takes you along the coastline of Soller and then up to and over the mountain ridge. Here some climbing/scrambling is required. Not real climbing, though some steep/high and narrow parts need both hands for stabilizing yourself, surefootedness and a good head for heights. After the ridge the trail continues down and alongside a valley and later through olive and orange fields and past a beautiful luxurious finca mansion. Just the last part is following the street again. Youll also pass a small orange juice bar at the beginning of the trail where you can take a nice refreshment whilst enjoying the beautiful view.
At the ridge small dogs would need to be carried up the biggest rocks. This requires some good fitness and a well behaving dog. Consider not taking your dog for this hike as you will need both hands to climb a small and narrow part at the ridge. Stable footwear and surefootedness required and at the ridge you need a good head for heights! A good fitness level is a benefit as the trail can get exhausting in the summer. In general take plenty of water! Not recommended for children!
Best time of year
Trecking experience required. Good head for heights and surefootedness especially at the ridge. Not for children!! Dogs: Not really recommended if you like to climb the ridge to continue for the second half of the hike. You will need both hands to lift yourself and take care of the dog at the same time. A dog that fits into the rucksack would be OK, or a welll behaving dog who can be lifted and follows commands. Do not do this hike alone!
Take good trecking footwear and plenty of water. Long trousers to avoid small scratches from sharp grass.

It is a circular tour with start and ending point in Port de Soller.
Is that the gate after walking up the orange fields? As far as I know the fincas have to give right of passage. We arrived at this gate coming from the north and just closed it thoroughly behind us. The way down to the gate was marked so I believe it is OK.
