it's a hike *I* won't be taking any time soon - the El Caminito del Rey

jaylake twittered a link to a video that was just amazing, so I tracked down the details.

El Caminito del Rey is a narrow walkway, formerly used by hydroelectric plant workers, built into the sides of a gorge in El Chorro, Spain.

Now it's in severe disrepair but people like to hike it. It's almost 1000 feet off the ground. The drop is straight down. Yikes. I'll pass. I'll just play the video game based on the hike, instead.
