Difficulty: Low


This trail leads you to ancient and beautiful many-hued volcanic cones and then takes you past deep black volcanic cones. 

These younger volcanic cones emerged during the eruption of January 1705, forming what is known today as the Fasnia Volcano.

Beekeepers use the dense broom thickets and their profuse blossom to produce the highly prized broom honey, while their bees help to pollinate the local flora. 

Other shrubs that you will see in abundance along the trail are Teide sticky broom or codeso (Adenocarpus viscosus), flixweed or hierba pajonera (Descurainia bourgaeana), and rosalillo de cumbre (Pterocephalus lasiospermus). The wildlife includes kestrels, Berthelot’s pipits, chiffchaffs, and spectacled warblers.


  • 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.
