    Trail description

    The trail starts by the Santiago del Teide petrol station, along a broad pathway surrounded by unused farm plots. When you reach the first fork, veer left to carry on downwards until you come to an area near a gulley. You will eventually come to Tamaimo and walk on along the bottom of the ravine. There is a short stretch of cement track and then the first clusters of houses appear, followed by country estates and greenhouses. Take the stone steps down and stick to the track, then take the pathway to the left onto the paved road. Your journey ends about 500 yards ahead.
