Currently blocked by a landslide!!! Unfortunately I didn’t see the previous review where someone mentioned this.

The drive is only for the adventurous - a very tiny, one lane road on the ridge of a mountain. Unless you have 4-wheel drive you’ll have to park a kilometer from the destination and hike the rest of the way - only to find it blocked anyway.

So disappointed. I would have loved to see it.

Airy hike on an overgrown trail. Amazing to see the effort put into making the tunnels. Enter at own risk, whilst eating lunch near tunnel 8 rocks came whistling down from above. Luckily we were under a ledge...

Read the TIPS at the end.
A superb walk, but only for the sure footed. This walk is also officially CLOSED. However, you can still do it, but only at your own risk. Driving to the location from the South can be difficult as the roads leading up are very steep (there's a couple of roads which can take you close to the location). The road ends at a dirt track, which is not suitable for most vehicles, so park where you can and walk the rest of the way by following the dirt road up until you come to the transmitters, walk round them and continue on the dirt road for a further 200m until you see a small narrow path off to the right with a large yellow sign (see pic). Just follow this all the way until you come to a JCB (yes, really) :-))), the start of the real trek begins here as you have to enter the first section of tunnels just behind it. The tunnels aren't too bad to navigate. There are spectacular views and vistas to be had. As you continue to walk, you will repeatedly enter and exit the tunnels (walking inside the aquaduct channel sometimes helps) and some of the walkways can be pretty treacherous with loose earth, so be careful. Towards the longest section of the tunnels there's been a landslide (the reason for the closure), which can still be walked, but it is extremely dangerous.
TIPS.
Take a torch.
Hiking shoes or sturdy trainers are a must, flip-flops or sandals will not suffice.
Start your walk early, as the views can be lost in cloud cover towards midday.
They recommend hard hats, but if you're careful, you should manage without, we did.
Take plenty of water.
Take a camera.
Let someone know where you're going before you head off, just in case of an accident.

As per recent English review, this route is closed, you enter only on your own responsibility. There is a big sign at the start of the route comming from the Pino de Don Tomas, on Pista de Anocheza, however, when like us, you are comming from the other side, from north side of Barranco de Badajoz there is nothing to inform about the route being closed.
