Take a Hike at the Most Dangerous Hiking Trail on Earth

El Caminito del Rey

This must be one of the most dangerous hiking trail on earth, you can find one along the walls of gorge in Southern Spain on El Caminito del Rey which means the King’s Little Path. When it was built in 1905, the path provided a walkway for hydroelectric power plant workers but the walkway has seen a lot of wear and tear, losing chunks of its concrete infrastructure to the river 100 meters below and leaving gaping voids for hikers to traverse. A $12 million plan to restore the terribly treacherous pathway to its original, less treacherous condition is planned between now and 2015.
