Trail description

The mountain top known as Sombrerito de Chasna (meaning the Chasna Hat) stands at an altitude of 2,435 m (7,989 ft) above sea level and is one of the most striking peaks in southern Tenerife. Its rocky wall rises like a hat from the slopes of La Caldera in Teide National Park. On the way up to the large plateau at the top, after a considerable final climb, you will be rewarded with stunning views of El Teide and Las Cañadas. The trail starts on the bend to the right of the TF-21 main road from Vilaflor to Las Cañadas, at km point 59.7. At the beginning of the path stand the ruins of two stone houses and a board displaying information about the path. The elevation on the trail is 400 m, making it an intermediate difficulty hike.
