    Trail description

    This trail takes hikers to explore one of the best preserved expanses of Monteverde greenery in Tenerife. And the good thing is that you won't need to venture far away from civilisation to reach it. Right from the start of the trail, you will be walking under the forest canopy, beside the Toledo ravine. It will feel cooler in the shade of the trees because it is a humid environment. That humidity is what enables certain specimens to exist, such as the viñatigo tree known as the “Viñatigo from the Cradle”, which stands on the right of the path. This is just one of the fortunate trees not to have been cut down during the last century. Opposite that tree is the Madre del Agua gulley, which still has some water running through it. After that, the trail turns sharply and the surroundings change significantly. The vegetation clears and the trail gets brighter. This scenery continues until the end of the walk, where there is an area equipped with benches to rest on.

  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
