Absolutely breathtaking paths. We got there in rain, mist, strong wind and extreme cold in late January. It was still an amazing path to walk on. Lichens, epiphytons, ferns and loads of endemic plant and bird species. I highly recommend this place.

This trail wasn't what I was expecting. It was nice, but nothing that I would repeat or recommend. It was boring and the view does not change much. So, after 1 hour waking I got tired of looking at the same over and over again.

If you like hiking or enjoy the woods you should go. Unique wood with Laurisilva and very valued by people from Tenerife. You can go to some of the best beaches in Tenerife

It is enchanting space to enable close commune with nature. It is not to rush simply to stay among the trees , listen to the sound of the wind among the branches , feel the air on your face moisture . Lovely place!

Wild and nice forest. Nice tracks that are slippery when it's wet, so walking sticks and good walking shoes are mandatory for walks under/after rain.
