Alto de Guamaso Accessible Trail

Teide National Park

Difficulty: Low

Description

This flat and accessible trail takes you right up to the volcanic cone of Guamaso. 

The cone was formed by the accumulation of volcanic material with striking lava bombs dotted over its slopes. This route immerses you in the typical vegetation of the National Park, and you can see the transition from Canary Island pine forest to high mountain scrubland. 

On some days you can also see the distinctive sea of clouds formed in this area by the trade winds and the towering presence of Mount Teide on the western horizon.

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.
