This trail runs along a short section of one of the old footpaths leading up from the Orotava Valley to the mountain pastures.
It links the lower boundary of the Teide National Park, near the stopping place known as Recibo Quemado on the TF-21 road, with trails PNT 01 (La Fortaleza) and PNT 22 (Lomo Hurtado).
The path starts off through a Canary Island pine forest that gradually clears away until it gives way to mountain scrubland. When you reach this point you will be able to see the rocky slopes of El Cabezón and La Fortaleza, as well as Mount Teide and Montaña Blanca.
- 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.
