Description

The Agua García Accessible Trail runs through the Protected Landscape of Las Lagunetas and contains one of the best examples of laurel forest on the island of Tenerife. 

It is a fully accessible route for people with reduced mobility with 5 rest areas. 

After just a few metres, you will find yourself deep in lush woodland traversing the ravines of Barranco de Toledo and Barranco del Salto Blanco. At this point you will see the viñatigo tree (Persea indica) known as La Cuna on your right, just in front of the Madre del Agua water gallery. This famous tree is between 800 and 1000 years old. 

From here on, the path opens up and becomes much brighter. 

A curious fact is that the local rodents often consume the sap of the viñátigo, which has a hallucinogenic effect on them and causes them to become temporarily dazed.

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.
