GR 131 Anaga - Chasna. Stretch: La Esperanza - La Caldera Recreation Area

Technical information

    Trail description

    This GR trail sets off from the town of La Esperanza. If you walk through the woods of El Adelantado and along Calle Grano de Oro, you will come to the El Rayo track. Follow it to the track of Las Barranqueras and join that track to Cruz de Fune. The trail then alternates stretches of forest tracks and footpaths until you come to the Siete Fuentes resting area. After that, get ready for a tough climb. Once you reach the highest altitude levels, the trail guides you around ravines under the shade of the pine trees to a forest track, which takes you to El Portillo del Topo. There, it joins the short trail of PR-TF 35 Mamio Pinolere to reach the La Caldera Recreation Area. If you plan on camping, you can apply for authorisation to camp at the Recreation Area of La Caldera on
