Difficulty: Low


This beautiful path through pine forests and volcanic terrain begins at Los Partidos de Franchis, next to the roundabout where the bus drops you off. 

From this point, join the Pino Loro track to enter a landscape of contrasts between black volcanic lava flows and the vibrant green of the pine forest. 

The track ascends until you reach Montaña de Los Riegos, where you must take an old path to connect with the famous Canal de Vergara, which climbs steadily until you reach the slopes of Montaña de la Cruz. 

Here the route connects with the main PR TF 43 trail (Garachico - Montaña Chinyero) where the route ends with fantastic panoramic views of the last volcanic eruption recorded in Tenerife at the beginning of the 20th century.


  • 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.
