Hiking trail from the road on top of Roque de los Muchachos mountain to the village of Barlovento. You can see the water reservoir (built in a crater) from far away. Trail is very rocky the first 20min then gets more flowy under the pinetrees. Slippery tunnel-like when it comes to the laurel jungle.
The trail ends some hundred meters before the reservoir, the fire road from there to Barlovento can be very slippery when wet!

Update: after 1/3 of the Trail, shortly after the drop onto the fire road, there is a built local DH-track in the woods. If you do not want to ride this easy but funny trail, check your map or gps exactly, or you will automatically ride this trail - it looks like the usual track!
