PNT 33 Montaña Negra

PNT-33

Teide National Park

Difficulty: Low

Description

This trail runs along the upper section of an old footpath from La Guancha, San Juan de La Rambla and Icod el Alto. 

It links the PNT 01 trail (La Fortaleza) at the foot of the westernmost ridges near the edge of the National Park with the PNT 22 trail (Lomo Hurtado) that descends from Montaña Blanca. 

The route runs past the foot of the steep slopes of Mount Teide and skirts the volcanic cone known as Montaña Negra. Although its name means “black mountain” it is in fact brownish-grey owing to oxidation. 

The upper reaches of the trail are populated by dense thickets of broom that give way to a Canary Island pine forest on the lower stretch, which is still recovering after the forest fire of 2007.

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.
