Historic footpath reopened after landslides 

PAGE 15 HISTORIC

An old footpath which has a history going back 500 years has now been reopened by the Cabildo of Gran Canaria.

The circular path of Los Tilos de Moya is a reminder of the old Doramas Forest of Gran Canaria.

The Cabildo has recently completed repairs and cleaning of the section affected by landslides, as well as the rehabilitation of a section of railings and steps deteriorated by the passage of time.

Due to the danger of the actions undertaken by the risk of landslides and rocks, the scheme was commissioned by the Ministry of the Environment to a company specialised in vertical works, while the restoration of damaged railings and steps was done by the Cabildo’s own staff.

The Los Tilos de Moya circular path was closed from the road that goes from the GC-704 road to the connection with the section that goes to San Fernando de Moya, that is, the right bank of the Laurel Ravine.

This trail begins in the town of Moya in the direction of Fontanales and passes through the most interesting natural, landscape and ethnographic areas of the municipality, among which is the largest and best preserved area of laurisilva of the Island, Los Tilos Special Natural Reserve.
