Some of the route descriptions lack clear directions of reaching the start - essential information before you can get going. The style of walk descriptions is at times rather terse as if you are on a route-march instead of doing it for pleasure.

My biggest disappointments were the maps which are not detailed enough. I would recommend 'Gran Canaria Tour & Trail Super-Durable Map' from the reliable and accurate publishers, Discovery Walking Guides Ltd. Unfortunately they don't have a walks book at present though their Tour & Trail Map includes a good number of clear and up to date walking trails.

I visited Gran Canaria in January and the time was ideal for long walks in the mountains. Not too hot, some very cool days but with appropriate clothing there were no problems. When the clouds were low, it was easy to pick lower routes. I used to book for both selecting routes and navigating on them. There were no problems and the instructions were easy to follow. In one case did I select a wrong downhill route (in rather bad shape) about which there was no warning but otherwise it was fine. The Camino Real to Maspalomas from San Bartolome is, as the author says, not yet ready, so he gives just the highway route which is not for walking: (too many cars and lots of bicyclists). With the map one can find a much better footpath route, so a good map is very useful!
In any case I warmly recommend this guide. It keeps the good Cicerone standard.

Maps are far too breif to do any serious navigation. No terrain information and just thumbnail.
We got seriously lost on an easy walk from Las Palmas.

The individual maps for each walk are excellent, as were the directions. The only addition I would like, and be willing to pay for, would be an overall map, to show all the routes and their interconnections.

The routes are nicely written and I think its a good book if you intend to exclusively follow the walks as described. But there are a lot of other paths and roads crossing those. The maps are also consentrated on the routes and difficult to use for other purposes. Since my goal for the trip was to both walk on and off "the trodden path" I met some difficulties.

The guide has some nice walks, but I am missing some good maps. Also an index with "which walks do I find around this place" would improve the guide.

This guide provided us with great walks across the entire island. It works very well indeed in conjunction with the map I bought.
