Trail description

The circular trail of Los Brezos offers hikers the chance to follow a route that links together the traditional pathways of Igonce, Los Brezos, Piedras de Carcho, El Luchón and Barranco La Gotera. With the exception of the stretch in Piedras de Carcho, which is within the Protected Nature Area of Corona Forestal Natural Park, the rest of the route is predominantly agricultural, journeying across the high hillside farmland in the south-east of the Island. These landscapes are home to significant pieces of heritage, such as the canals, irrigation channels, troughs, fountains, pools, volcanic ovens for drying fruit and the estate of Las Haciendas, a property of considerable value as it contains a traditional Canarian building and a wine press. It also boasts interesting geomorphological elements, among which Las Lajas de Chafa are worthy of special mention. As this is a round trip, you can choose to start at Plaza de Araya, La Charca del Pino or the Los Brezos Recreation Area. We suggest starting at the latter so you get to make use of the recreation area's facilities after your hike. This includes barbecue facilities, tables and benches, toilets, a sink, a children's play area and more, making it a great place for a well-earned rest. There is also a chapel you can visit here: the chapel of San Isidro. It was built in the 1970s thanks to the devotion and hard work of the locals, who come together every year on the last Sunday in May to celebrate their pilgrimage festivities.

Remember: Prevention, Information and Knowledge are the key to avoiding unpleasant situations.
  1. Make sure you always have somebody else to walk with, stick to the marked footpaths and respect the way of life, privacy and property of the local inhabitants.
  2. If you keep your noise levels down, you will discover just how much life there is all around you.
  3. Take any rubbish with you, even organic waste. This will help preserve the beauty of the scenery and prevent the proliferation of rodents in the area. Take special care with cigarette butts.
  4. Picking up plants, animals or other items from the environment may entail the loss of irreplaceable resources.
  5. The people who take care of these Protected Nature Areas would be very grateful if you let them know about any incidents you may have noticed on your walk. To do so, contact the Environmental Department of the Island Council of Tenerife:

    Área de Medio Ambiente del Cabildo Insular de Tenerife

  6. Remember that the Island's environment is as unique as it is unpredictable. It must be enjoyed responsibly and sensibly. Take special care in natural areas and don't forget that accidents can happen at any time.
  7. Pay attention to signs.
  8. Check the weather forecast​ to make sure the conditions are suitable.
  9. Wear suitable clothing and footwear for hiking and always pack your mobile phone, sunscreen, a hat, a coat, a waterproof, enough food and plenty of water in your backpack.
  10. Let your family and/or friends know which route you will be taking and bear in mind how many daylight hours you will need to complete it.
