SL-TF 60 Santiago del Teide - Arguayo (Almond Blossom Route)

Technical information

Trail description

The trail starts in the square by the Town Hall. Most of the way, you will be following the PR-TF 43.3 trail, which leads to the Chinyero volcano. Starting at the square, take Calle La Placeta to the right, all the way to the end, and turn left then right straight away, along Camino del Cementerio (Cemetery Lane). A few yards ahead on the left you will see the start of the trail signposted with an arrow. Follow the trail until you come to a broader path (Camino de los Arrastraderos), beside a distinctly triangular dam. Here, veer right and follow the path upwards to a crossing, which is also signposted with arrows, allowing you to head towards Valle de Arriba, to Las Manchas or straight up towards Arguayo. Carry straight on following the signs until you come to El Calvario de los Baldíos. Here, take the earth track to the right and you will eventually see the remains of one of the Chinyero volcano's lava tongues. Take the trail across it to another signposted crossing pointing you either towards the next stretch of the PR-TF 43.3 trail or straight on towards Arguayo. Choose the latter. From there, follow the signs that lead you gently down until you begin to glimpse the town. Once you have made it to the main road, steer right and carry on along Calle San Agustín, then Calle San Luís until you join Calle El Carmen. Turn left onto Calle El Carmen and follow it all the way to the end, where you will come to the Arguayo Pottery Centre, your final destination.
