Technical information

Trail description

This trail begins in the village of Chío on the upward stretch of Calle El Roquillo, beside the village cemetery. The first part of the walk leads you to the village of Chiguergue. Cross the village along Calle Tinguaro and turn left along Camino de Chirche, also known as Calle San Pedro, which will lead you to the neighbourhood of San Pedro, with its lovely Canarian rural houses. The PR-TF 70 trail also runs through the village, but this time you will be walking on towards El Jaral, where the trail reaches its highest altitude. After the climb, the trail descends to the village of El Jaral and along Calle Cuba, where you will rejoin the path to the hamlet of Las Fuentes. The hamlet is currently uninhabited, but its houses carved into the sandstone walls still stand. From there, carry on to Vera de Erques. You will come to the end of the trail about 300 yards before reaching the church.
