SL TF 296.1 Barranco El Rincón

SL-TF 296.1

Valle de Güímar

Difficulty: Low


This short, pleasant trail of just 1.4 km connects the Las Cuevecitas neighbourhood with the other routes of the Local Trails Network of Candelaria.

The trail sets off from Plaza de las Cuevecitas and takes Calle La Hoya to head towards the Barranco de El Rincón ravine along a narrow, winding path that traces the features of the landscape.

Once you reach the ravine, the path starts to climb, crossing several tracks, including the one that connects the El Rincón gallery with the village of Araya.

The trail then narrows again and continues over a compact dirt track, paved at some points, running parallel to a water channel.

The last stretch of the route crosses an area of abandoned terraces, which bear witness to the extensive agricultural activity in the area in the 20th century.

When you reach Cruz del Camino at the end of the trail, you can continue hiking as the path links up with the Los Brezos loop trail (SL TF 294) or the La Mesa trail (SL TF 296).

This trail is approved in accordance with Decree 11/2005, of 15 February, which created the Canary Island Network of Trails and regulates the conditions for the organisation, approval and conservation of the trails of the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands, which means that these trails are officially designated as footpaths for sports, tourism or recreational use in nature.


  • Always stay on the marked trail and do not enter private property, hunting grounds, water galleries, wells or caves.  
  • Pay special attention when crossing or walking along trails used by bicycles, horses or motor vehicles and when walking in 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. 
  • Check out our guide to hiking in Tenerife and, if necessary, contact the emergency services by calling 112.
