Very enjoyable few hours. Track is passable with care by motorbike. Mixture of loose stone and fine dust. 34km lap around bardena baja, the nicest area according to the lady in the information centre. Lots of scenery.

Very unusual. Our friends took us there but we only had a couple of hours so missed much and it was hot. Bear this in mind it is dry. As our friends pointed out this is used in many films, James Bond, Spaghetti westerns etc....More

Brilliant place to visit and to take some walks. One can imagine being on another planet. In high season it must be intolerable busy and hot, in October it was lovely with warm dry weather ±25degrees.
