    Trail description

    This branch of the PR-TF 70 starts in an area known as Llano del Negro or Tumba del Negro. You will notice that the track starts close by to your left, but the path cuts straight across it several times. At certain points on the way, you will be greeted by stunning panoramic views of the mountains of Isora, and even as far as the islands of La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro. As you continue your descent along the trail, the pine forest slowly begins to clear and gives way to bush vegetation such as brooms, laburnums and the like. Once you get to the track, you will reach a two-way crossing. Turn right; turning left would take you along the same track towards Adeje. Walk on down the track until you come to the start of another trail on the right. Turn onto that trail and carry on down. As you approach the hamlet of Las Fuentes, you will reach the house of Los Poleos, a traditional house with a small chicken pen and a farmyard for goats and other animals. From this point, the path takes on the dimensions of an old bridle path, meaning it is wider with higher walls along the sides. The path then forks into two paths that lead to the hamlet of Las Fuentes. This cluster of houses is a mythical hamlet that was completely uninhabited in the 1970s, but has now recovered some of its agricultural activity.

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.
