PR-TF 65.3 El Molledo - Degollada del Roque

Technical information

Trail description

This variant of the trail takes walkers up the northwest slopes of the Valley of Santiago, across a landscape dominated by white broom bushes which have overgrown the unused farmland. Starting at El Molledo along Calle La Calzada, walk on until you come to a signposted crossing where different sections of this trail meet. From there, head towards La Degollada del Roque. You will initially walk past a natural spring and a series of sheds. Further on, you will come to the mountain pass of La Degollada del Roque to reach the other side of the slope. You will find yourself walking beside a flat rock surface on your left for a few yards, with stunning views of the Barranco Seco ravine and Risco Blanco on the right. After that, you will be guided down a winding path to the bottom of the ravine, where you can get back to El Molledo by following the main stretch of the PR-TF 65 trail, or carry on down to Puerto Santiago.
