Montaña Cuervo is an extinct volcano that was part of the 1730 series of eruptions that changed the landscape of Lanzarote. Once you pass the big volcanic rock pillars that mark the boundary of the Municipality of Tinajo on the LZ56 road you can see the car park on the left. You simply cannot get lost on this walk as the path is clearly marked with volcanic stones and straying from it is dangerous because the landscape off the path is likely to contain concealed lava bubbles that look like the rest of the ground but won't support your weight. You can walk right round the outside of this volcano and at one point the path enters the volcano crater itself which is stunning. While the path is easy to follow it's perhaps not great for pushchairs or buggies, we saw a couple really struggling to get their buggy through the areas of soft volcanic grit that make up large areas of the path. Highly recommended for excellent views and a real sense of how volcanoes form and affect the wider landscape.
