More information
The path part of the southern end of Caleta del Sebo, along with equipment and Salado Bay camping area. Follows line of coast by a virtually parallel to the coast road which incorporates the right track coming from Caleta del Sebo. Road, arriving at the Lagunita and the Baja de la Peña, is separated from the coast to save this area where the water is slow and where it is common to observe birds looking for food in shallow water. The road continues to the beach of la Lajita, small beach that joins the French, perhaps the most renowned beach of La Graciosa. There, a bicycle parking and small wooden bollards mark the end of the road passable for vehicles and bicycles. At this point should avoid taking the road that enters the island, which must be followed along the beach to its West end. French beach is one of the favourite destinations for its fine sand and for being a Cove sheltered the dominant ocean currents and winds. The route continues until the end of the beach, where the road turns to the right and ascends to take the path to the yellow mountain. 300 Metres follow straight to turn slightly to the right, up to a point from where you have an incredible view of the beach from the kitchen. In its vicinity, a road that goes to the right continues the ascent towards the volcano. The main route continues straight, entering the beach from the kitchen through its southern end, describing a pronounced descent through irregular terrain. The ascent to yellow mountain variant is considered of high difficulty to overcome some 130 meters of altitude in less than a mile, of which 300 metres run through difficult terrain. It starts from the junction next to the beach of the kitchen and climbs gently for about 600 meters in North direction, ignoring the paths that go out to the right, until you reach a small hill with a crossroads. You must turn left by avoiding the road that enters the island heading north. Just a few meters beyond, turns left again avoiding the path that descends to the Hoyas de Cho Manuel. At 150 metres the road returns to turn 90 degrees left to take the line of maximum slope to the top of the volcano. During this last stretch and at the top it is use extreme caution to avoid falls and landslides. From the top of yellow mountain is one of the most spectacular panoramic views of the Chinijo archipelago nature.
