Very steep with many switchbacks on loose ground and big rocks. Spectacular views hundreds of meters down into the Barranco del Carmen. Shortly before the trail leads on the road you pass a house, there may be a big guarddog. The LP 3 goes further down to Santa Cruz, but is paved from there on.

Access Info

On the Montana de la Tagoya take the doubletrack leading to the right. Coming down the LP 3 from teh Pico de la Nieve or from the parking lot at the road.
