    Trail description

    The El Risco footpath is an old trail with natural steps leading down to Buenavista. It begins at Plaza de Los Bailaderos in Teno Alto (in the municipality of Buenavista del Norte). Heading north along the track of La Mulata, you will come to Las Barreras de Puerto Malo. There, cross the track by Casas de La Torre, go past the track of Gollada and continue ahead towards El Alto del Risco and La Erita, an aboriginal meeting place, where the descent begins. Walk along the western side of the ravine of Aderno to the point where it meets the ravine of Bujamé, which is where the footpath ends, in Casablanca, roughly 2 km (1.2 miles) away from the town centre.
