GR221 Ruta de Pedra en sec

GR221 Ruta de Pedra en sec, Pollença - Port d’Andratx, 162 km, 8 days

This trail is situated on the island of Majorca. Ruta de Pedra en Sec translates to Trail of the Dry Stone Walls. Dry stone walls are a remarkable feature in the mountains of Serra de Tramuntana, along the northern coast of Majorca. For this reason, the area has been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site.

The GR221 uses the old paths. It is still under construction, but by using bypasses, walking entire length is possible. At the same time of developing the trail, the authorities try to restore the original dry stone cultural landscape. When finished, the total length should be 271 km.

The GR221 follows the coastline, lingers through the mountains where it reaches 1.000 m, and follows the pretty dry valleys between the mountain ridges.

The trail is marked, maps are available, refuges have been installed in old buildings, so many efforts have been done to create a good hiking experience.

  • Positive Mallorca is a beautiful island with amazing scenery and wonderful wildlife. It also has plenty of sun........i found the people (in the main) very friendly, helpful and interested in my walk. The good segments are very well sign posted and the trail is on good solid paths through these sections
  • Negative So why the low score? Because large sections(mainly in the first few days)are not signed, badly signed or have been closed with large barbwire fences and big signs saying privado. I found getting maps difficult, even in Palma and the local GR221 guide(english version)which is available in most shops in mallorca is not greatly helpful for the walk though it does make a nice momento of the journey:)

  • A great walk but with real problems on the first few day to do with signage and access.....the walk by rights shouldn't say it begins until either Valldemossa or Deia where the signs start to become more reliable and there is no barbed wire fences...
