This trail follows the old Camino Real de Chasna, which once connected the north and south of the island.
The route starts in front of the El Portillo Visitor Centre, so please be very careful when crossing the main road. At this point you will see a dirt track that you will follow the entire way.
The route climbs and descends a little, but it is not very steep; and, as its name suggests, it will allow you to visit 7 of the main cañadas (plains or depressions) of the Teide National Park before reaching the Parador de Turismo: Cañada de Diego Hernández, Cañada de las Pilas, Cañada de la Angostura, Cañada de la Grieta, Cañada del Montón de Trigo, Cañada de la Mareta and Cañada del Capricho.
- 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.
