PNT-28

Parque Nacional del Teide

Difficulty: Medium

Description

This trail climbs the slopes of Pico Viejo from the TF-38 road, just over a kilometre from Boca Tauce. 

It runs for the most part along the dirt track known as “Los Chircheros”, ascending through a landscape of abundant broom that has colonised the lava flows that descended from the top of Pico Viejo. 

At the end of this forest track, you will begin to climb along a path of loose pyroclastic material from the eruption of Las Narices del Teide in 1798. 

This part of the trail is arduous, as progress is hampered by the loose rock underfoot and the steepness of the climb. 

The trail ends at the top of Las Narices del Teide at an altitude of 2752 m, where you will meet the PNT 09 trail (Teide - Pico Viejo). You can now continue climbing up to La Rambleta (3503 m) or descend to the Las Narices del Teide viewpoint on the TF-38 road.

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.
