This route, which starts in Garachico, a town popular with tourists, offers you the opportunity to walk among volcanoes.
It climbs from Garachico along Camino de El Lance to San Juan del Reparo through lava flows that form a landscape of great geological interest.
You will soon reach the village of La Montañeta and from there continue towards the Arenas Negras Recreational Area and Montaña de Las Flores.
At this point a loop around the Chinyero Volcano begins, passing through lava flows and ancient pine trees such as Pino de Cha Lorenza, where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the south face of Chinyero.
Mountains such as La Corredera, Los Poleos or La Cruz will also feature along the route, as well as wide panoramic views of Mount Teide and Pico Viejo on clear days.
This trail begins with a steep and difficult ascent, so make sure you are in good enough physical shape to walk the entire route or, if not, consider the possibility of doing just a section of the walk. You should also bear in mind that, as it is a linear route, you will need to plan your return to Garachico when you reach the area around the Chinyero Volcano.
