Description

Branch of the main PR TF 53 (Cuevas Negras) trail that starts right from the abandoned settlement in Barranco Cuevas Negras.

From this point, where a huge Canary laurel tree grows, reputedly the largest in the world, you will gently ascend Lomo del Topo in a north-easterly direction. On the way you will be able to admire the wonderful panoramic views of the Isla Baja, with notable landmarks that include Montaña de Taco and the Buenavista lighthouse.

Once you reach Lomo Morín, the highest point of the route, you will begin a gentle descent through Barranco de El Til until you reach Tierra del Trigo, the end 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.
