Parque Nacional del Teide

Difficulty: Low

Description

This trail descends gently down the slopes of Mount Teide to the Parador, located in the middle of the area known as Cañada Blanca. 

The path runs around the pumice cone of Montaña Majúa, then skirts the lava flows and continues through the broom scrubland of Cañada Blanca. 

The landscape is thickly covered with Teide white broom or retama (Spartocytisus supranubius), but you will also see Teide sticky broom or codeso (Adenocarpus viscosus), flixweed or hierba pajonera (Descurainia bourgaeana), rosalillo de cumbre (Pterocephalus lasiospermus) and marguerites (Argyranthemum frutescens).

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.
