Description

This accessible trail starts at La Ruleta viewpoint and runs alongside the Roques de García. 

The path takes you more than 200 metres to a spot that affords views of the emblematic Roque Cinchado, the alignment of the Roques de García, Mount Teide and the rock face of the Las Cañadas cirque, where the most prominent peak is Guajara, just behind the Parador Nacional.

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.
