Macizo de Anaga

PR TF 12.1 Variante Tegueste

Difficulty: Medium

Description

This route starts near El Ajuntadero and then takes the track on the left, known as Los Dornajos.

You will enter a shaded and gentle path that leads across the forested hills of Tegueste. Follow it until you reach Mesa de La Orilla, where you can enjoy beautiful views of the valley.

From here the route continues down the hillside until you reach the town centre of Tegueste via the Puente de Palo bridge. The trail ends in Plaza de San Marcos, named after the patron saint of the municipality.

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.
