Description

This trail sets off from La Plaza de Erjos and descends gently to the west along the Monte del Agua track through leafy laurel forest. 

After walking 4 km, turn left to descend the hillside to Las Moradas Altas, where you can enjoy stunning panoramic views of the monteverde forests. The route follows the cobblestone remains of an ancient camino real (“royal road” or main island route), much of which is still preserved. 

Continue the descent to Las Moradas Bajas, an old abandoned rural settlement typical of the traditional rural architecture of the Canary Islands. Shortly after, you will reach Calle Susana, at the end of which is the Los Silos church square, 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.
