Description

An inviting route taking you through a dense forest of Canary Island pine, replanted in the mid-20th century in the Las Lagunetas Protected Landscape.

The trail begins in El Llano de Las Lagunetas, at the meeting point of 5 municipalities (El Rosario, Candelaria, El Sauzal, La Matanza and La Victoria de Acentejo). This location, alongside the many fields for grazing, agriculture and a few buildings, make it a popular natural spot for leisure activities. 

It is also the site of the La Esperanza former forestry house, used nowadays as the reception area for a tree tops rope course. 

As this is one of the most dense Canary Island pine forests on the island, many trees die due to the lack of light; therefore forest management staff regularly carry out controlled felling. As you reach lower altitudes, you will notice that the moisture-laden trade winds favour undergrowth containing monteverde species, such as tree heath (Erica arborea), faya (Morella faya) and acebiño (Ilex canariensis).

IBP Index: 8.

Tips

  • Always stay on the marked trail and do not enter private property, hunting grounds, water galleries, wells or caves.  
  • Be careful when walking along roads used by motor vehicles and hiking trails, and when crossing ravines with water courses.
  • Avoid direct encounters with potentially dangerous animals, such as livestock, beehives, and dogs. 
  • Proceed with caution and watch for obstacles, loose rocks, uneven terrain or steep slopes to avoid accidents and falls. 
  • Consult our good practice guide and, if necessary, contact emergency services by calling 112.
