PR-TF 69

Altos de Guía de Isora

Difficulty: High

Description

This trail follows part of the historic Camino Real del Sur, once the main thoroughfare on the south of the island, passing through some fantastic examples of rural Canarian architecture.  

From the cemetery of Chío follow Calle El Roquillo uphill, which will take you to the village of Chiguergue. Once there, take a left turn to continue uphill along Camino de Chirche. 

When you reach the village of Chirche, designated heritage of cultural interest in Tenerife, take time to explore its beautiful traditional Canarian architecture. 

When you reach the highest section of the route, continue towards El Jaral on the old Camino de Tágara. From here the footpath begins to descend and you will pass the abandoned rural settlement of Las Fuentes, with traditional houses carved into the bedrock. 

The trail continues downhill along Camino de Montiel, which will take you to your destination, Vera de Erques.

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.
