Description

This easy trail links the upper part of the Orotava Valley with Montaña Blanca. 

Despite the elevation gain, the slope only climbs somewhat steeply in the upper section. And since the ground underfoot is almost entirely compacted pumice stone, the going is relatively easy. 

The route starts at the crossroads of PNT 01 (La Fortaleza) and PNT 25 (Recibo Quemado) from the Orotava Valley, shortly before reaching Llano de Los Guancheros. From here it takes you away from the escarpments of Cabezón de Tigaiga and La Fortaleza as you climb towards Montaña Blanca. 

At its end it joins trail PNT 06 (Montaña de Los Tomillos), very near to trail PNT 7, which climbs towards the top of Montaña Blanca and Mount Teide. 

The dominant plant species along the route is Teide white broom or retama (Spartocytisus supranubius), together with other species such as flixweed or hierba pajonera (Descurainia bourgaeana).

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.
