This version of the walk starts in Arico Viejo but can be readily altered to start in nearby Arico Nuevo, which is always worth a visit, in any case, for its architectural charms. After a steady ascent through the villages of La Degollada and La Sabinita, and past numerous agricultural terraces and plots you emerge into wonderfully wild countryside around the Barranco of Tamadaya. On a clear day, there are great views on all sides, up to the mountains and down to the coast near Poris de Abona. There are a couple of steep ascents and descents, but on good paths. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable, well-recommended walk!
