The Trail of the Senses comprises three trails that set off from Cruz del Carmen along an old royal pathway, which once joined the towns in Anaga to the city of La Laguna. Each of the trails offers different experiences to arouse your sense of smell, sight and touch as you discover the nature all around you. Along the way, there are boards marked with a sensory symbol (nose, hand or eye) which invite walkers to smell, touch or look at specific things on the path. Trail of the Senses 3 covers both trails 1 and 2 and ventures even further down towards the Llano de Los Loros Lookout Point, where walkers are rewarded with views over Santa Cruz and the Tahodio ravine and reservoir. Although it is not very tough or steep, this trail does prove a little more challenging than the other two.
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.
