Trail description

This variant of the PR-TF 70 trail starts approximately 1.5 km (0.93 miles) before reaching the Forest House of Tágara. When you get to the ruins of the old tar oven, you will see the famous pine tree known as Pino de la Virgen by the side of the track, which was sadly blown over during a recent storm. To carry on towards El Jaral, you will need to take the path through the pine forest known as Camino Galante. Walk on over the pine needles that cover the path, past the cross of La Cruz de Manuel and, as the pine forest begins to clear, you will reach the crossing with Camino de Chirche. Veer left and down towards the end of the trail along the old pathway that linked Chirche to the peaks. As the trail draws to an end, you will come to a paved track where you should veer left onto the old pathway. Here, you will walk past another crossroads where left takes you to the La Higuera ravine and straight on takes you to El Jaral along Calle Niágara, all the way to the old water fountains.
