Description

This is the only trail that takes you over the walls of the caldera and is part of the old Camino de Chasna, which used to link the two sides of the island. 

The trail ascends from La Cañada del Montón de Trigo to the pass between the mountains of Pasajirón and Guajara. The view from this point is spectacular, with wide panoramic views of the National Park and the southern slopes of Tenerife. A highlight is Barranco del Río; the head of this ravine is found in this mountain pass.

Tips

  • 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.
