The trail starts at the foot of El Teide. As you walk gradually away from the mountain, its spectacular dimensions become all the more visible. You will be walking along on old mountain track which, in springtime, is lined with beehives to gather the popular broom flower honey. The lava decorating the dome of Montaña Blanca with a variety of shapes makes for a spectacular sight. The trail ends on the Siete Cañadas pathway, at the foot of the Guajara precipice. The vegetation is alive with broom bushes, laburnums, peak roses, marguerites and flixweed. In spring and summer, the area is buzzing with insects hovering around the flowers that tinge the scenery with whites, yellows and pinks.
For your own safety, don't forget to check the condition of the trail.
The competent authority will be responsible for informing you if the trail is not recommendable in the wake of adverse weather conditions, as well as if the trail or part of it is closed, etc.
