Difficulty: Low


This simple self-guided trail through the Anaga Rural Park takes you deep into the laurisilva, or laurel forest, which stretched across the Mediterranean 20 million years ago. 

The route begins on the track next to the restaurant in front of the Cruz del Carmen car park. After about 100 metres, you will come to a turning on your left marked with the sign “Hija Cambada”. 

Along the way you will pass through a tunnel of trees as well as several fallen specimens that have resprouted. In fact, this is the reason for the name of the trail, as there used to be an old specimen of “hija” (Prunus lusitanica) that was fallen or “cambado”, a Canarian term of Portuguese origin that means bent, twisted.


  • 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.
