Description

This trail links the upper part of the PNT 03 trail with the PNT 09 trail at Degollada de Pico Viejo, also known as Degollada de Chahorra. 

This hike requires a certain amount of preparation, as it involves a steep climb at high altitude, reaching 3,058 m. 

Along the route you will see how the mountain vegetation changes gradually as you ascend until nothing grows but stunted broom on the upper reaches of the trail. 

One of the most striking features of this trail is seeing the various types of lava produced by volcanic eruptions. Some sections, however, will require more effort as you will be walking over loose rocks and sharp edges. We therefore recommend that you wear appropriate footwear for this type of terrain.

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.
