Sounds interesting. We keep intending to try parts of the the route. Although this bit looks like it just goes down the main road from Pollensa to the Port - pretty boring! So I assume they just added a few signs but useful for those who have walked from the South-West! The extension to Formentor may be more interesting.

There is an official website here for the GR221 (Dry Stone Route)Ruta de Pedra en Sec GR 221 :: Pedra en sec i senderisme :: Consell de Mallorca

and a few books & maps here Walking Books, Maps, Travel Guides, Holiday Reading on Majorca
