Pista de las Hiedras Adapted Trail

Macizo de Anaga

Difficulty: Very low

Description

Adapted and accessible section that takes in the first 800 m of the beautiful Pista de las Hiedras, in the heart of Anaga Rural Park.

The accessible route starts at the top of the Río ravine and has adapted car parks at the trailhead, as well as seating along the route and a rest area next to an old aggregate quarry, which has now been reclaimed by native fauna and flora. 

This pleasant walk will envelop you in monteverde woodland, thickly draped with Canary Island ivy (“hiedra canaria”), which gives its name to the trail.

After the first 800 metres, the footpath continues for another 3.7 km along the non-adapted Pista de las Hiedras trail, which, if you decide to continue, will lead you into a leafy forest of laurel trees (Laurus novocanariensis), viñatigo (Persea indica), tree heath (Erica arborea), “hija” (Prunus lusitanica, also called Portugal laurel) and delfino (Pleiomeris canariensis).

At various points along the way, gaps open up between these magnificent trees to offer panoramic views of the village of El Batán, the Barranco del Río ravine and the coast of Punta del Hidalgo.

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.
