Difficulty: High

Description

This trail sets off from Las Vegas, the first place to be settled by the Spanish in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona. It was founded at the beginning of the 16th century around the church of Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza.

From the church, head north-west along the Camino de Guajara, the first section of which is asphalted. Leave Camino del Bujero to the right and head up Cañada La Pasada on the left until you reach the imposing rock face of Risco El Muerto. 

From here, continue the ascent in a westerly direction towards El Sombrío and La Abejera, then take the old Camino de Los Cardos. 

When you reach the Madre del Agua forest track that leads to Barranco del Río, cross it to connect with the PR-TF 83 trail, which in turn continues to the Los Escurriales viewpoint. 

When planning for this route, bear in mind that this trail climbs steadily upwards and involves a significant elevation gain. Also, remember to make plans for your return journey, as the end point of the route is only accessible on foot.

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.
