- Always take a coat and a waterproof. The Island's microclimate can cause temperatures to change quickly, especially at high altitudes.
- Check the weather forecast before heading out, especially for severe weather warnings. In the event of strong winds or heavy rain, it is best to avoid using these trails.
- Do not go off the beaten track or out of the authorised network of trails.
- Take extra care on roads, especially in busy urban areas.
- When travelling alone, always let somebody know where you are going (either someone you know or your hotel reception) and leave your mobile number with them. This will make it easier to find you if necessary.
- Always wear a helmet, which is essential for your safety.
- Do not throw any objects, garbage or waste, particularly cigarette butts, or any other liquid or solid waste at any point during the trail.
- Remember that the trails do not have protective barriers at the sides, which means that landslides may occur. Also, bear in mind that some sections are particularly difficult, such as narrow passes, steep slopes, gullies and so on. It is important to take extra care at these points.
