Description

This easy trail descends from Las Minas de San José, in the centre of the National Park, to the foot of Risco Verde, in La Cañada de Las Pilas. 

The first section of the route passes through an area where pumice stone was mined for several decades, and then begins the descent through Los Valles until it reaches La Cañada de Las Pilas, at the foot of the walls of the Las Cañadas caldera. 

Along the way you will see several of the most representative plant species of the high mountain scrubland of the Canary Islands, and some examples of the traditional uses this area was put to before it was declared a National Park, such as firewood from the broom that grows here.

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.
