PR TF 43.1 San José de Los Llanos- Montaña Chinyero

PR-TF 43.1

Altos de Garachico

Difficulty: Low


This is a branch of the PR TF 43 trail that leaves from the square in San José de los Llanos (El Tanque) and heads through pine forests towards the Chinyero volcano. 

The trail passes Montaña de La Quebrada, where there is a calvary, and continues on, leaving Montaña del Banco on your right. 

The route continues towards Montaña de la Atalaya or Volcán de Trevejos, where you will enjoy magnificent views of Montaña Negra or Arenas Negras, and then cross the hidden Canal de Vergara. 

From here you will walk along a track of volcanic lapilli next to lava flows up to the slopes of Pico de las Flores. The final stretch will connect you with the PR-TF 43 trail, the end of the route.


  • 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.
