Incident Incident

Route temporarily closed - Warnings (fire, wind, etc.)

Itinerario cerrado debido al incendio forestal del verano de 2023


A section of just over 2 km that turns off VM 5 Pista del Rayo – Pista de Fondo (2) at the Cuatro Caminos crossroads to reach the Laguneta Chica Recreational Area, in the municipality of Santa Úrsula.

This route takes you through dense woodland typical of the northern uplands of Tenerife.

And the occasional gaps that open up in the canopy of pine trees along the route provide spectacular views of Mt Teide to the west.


  • 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.
