Hiking trail from top of the Roque de Los Muchachos to Puerto Tazacorte (beach).
Very long and steep, and very exposed on some points on the top. Great views to Tenerife and in to the Caldera.
Absolutely a must-do!
- DO NOT RIDE WHEN STORM, FOG OR BAD WEATHER!!!- Wind may blow you off a cliff!
Some climbs and uphills on the top, with very sharp partly loose rocks on the trail. Steep, and many switchbacks. Gets more flowy when in the pine forest, but around the fire-watchtower the trail is again extremly washed out and rocky for about 20 min. Short link down on a concrete road to the famous trail down the ridge to Puerto Tazacorte with stunning views over the edge of the trail vertically down to the beach. Many switchbacks on a roughly paved footpath, very steep.
Parking in a left-turn of the road shortly before the top sightseeing point. Look for the green sign to Puerto Tazacorte GR 131.
