VM 20.1. Access to Arenas Negras car park

VM-20.1

Description

A short section of just over 500 metres that connects with the Arenas Negras Recreational Area car park to the west.

The track, which begins on the VM-20 Pista Arenas Negras and Pista Montaña Cascajo route, runs through a relatively recent volcanic landscape with beautiful pine forests typical of this type of terrain.

This short route also offers spectacular views of the Arenas Negras volcano with Mt Teide as a backdrop.

When driving on this route in a motor vehicle, remember to watch out for hikers, cyclists and horse riders, as this track coincides with the BC-1.12 Arenas Negras bicycle and horse route, and is also very popular with hikers.

Tips

  • Always stay on the marked trail observing all traffic rules established in the regulations. 
  • When parking, keep away from water intakes or firefighting water storage tanks, and do not block the passage of other vehicles or access to the track.
  • Be extra careful both at junctions with paths and tracks and on sections shared by walkers, horse riders and cyclists. 
  • Proceed with care to avoid accidents that may be caused by obstacles, landslides and uneven terrain. 
  • Check our guide to motor vehicle routes and, if necessary, contact the emergency services by calling 112.
