Some of the most common natural hurdles you can come across on Tenerife’s trails are falling rocks, uneven terrain and water courses.
Avoid dangerous areas
It is forbidden to enter caves, wells and galleries throughout the island.
The topographyof these areas makes them prone to accidents and also makes rescues difficult, even for professionals with specific training.

Proceed with caution when crossing or walking along trails that are used by other vehicles, and along ravines with water courses.
Listen to your body
