their research to produce 100s, 1,000s, of updates including the expanding 'official hiking' route network we can now bring you

Roger and his mountain hiking mates Isabelle and Dane, all equipped with mapping gps units, have been invaluable in surveying the walking trails and advising on the map design so that we can confidently say this is the most detailed map of Gran Canaria that is available.
