Trail description

At km point 3 on the PR-TF 83.3, you will come to the pathway known as Camino del Molino, which leads to one of the most unique rural architectural features in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona: the Las Vegas water mill. Starting at the house of Casa de El Seco, the trail turns off westwards and crosses the Barranco Seco ravine towards El Callao, through the pine forest – which grows here at surprisingly low altitudes of just 850 m (2,788 ft). The water mill is a significant piece of heritage and an example of the techniques used to make the most of water in such a dry area. The trail continues until it reaches the area known as El Callao, where it crosses the PR-TF 83.1 which then carries on to Las Vegas.

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.
