*It has been reported to us that a local farmer is challenging walkers in this area, indicating that the rough roads on his land are private. Please be aware of this and be prepared to deal with it. Try to keep to any “white/yellow” marked paths designated for walkers where at all possible.*

This delightful short circular walk starts and finishes in the tiny hamlet of La Quinta, close to Taucho in the Adeje Ayuntamiento, and ascends gently through open pine forest before dropping to the spectacular Boca del Paso viewpoint high above the main southern holiday resorts. It then returns to the starting point at the Ermita de Santa Margarita in La Quinta. A delightful array of wild flowers lined the route in early January. Much of the pine forest shows signs of forest fire but has fully recovered.
