Macizo de Anaga

Difficulty: Medium

Description

This is a very challenging trail that takes you into the dramatic valleys on the southern slopes of the Anaga Massif.

This trail starts at the Forestry Service (Unidad de Montes) of the Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council, near the Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe chapel, in Casas de la Cumbre, and follows the path that heads left from the road.

The path descends steeply down Lomo de Mataborricos to the Chabuco and Los Berros ravines, both of which have abundant water in the rainy season. 

Shortly afterwards you will reach El Pelotón. From here, continue descending to Valle Brosque. Once there, hike up the valley on the right, flanked by Risco Cha Magdalena and Picacho del Majuelo to reach Lomo El Majimial. 

At this point you will see how the landscape around you changes completely as the vegetation goes from cardón or Canary Island spurge (Euphorbia canariensis) and tabaiba (Euphorbia balsamifera, Euphorbia lamarckii) to a beautiful laurel forest. 

Follow the path that will take you to the Casa Forestal Cruz de Taganana, the finishing point of the route.

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.
