Description
This short walk is a gentle introduction to hiking in the Guia de Isora area. Setting out under the ancient volcanic cone of Montaña Tejina, the route heads eastwards, crossing a couple of shallow barrancos – Cuéscara and Bicacaro, before reaching the rural hamlet of La Colateja on the TF-465 road to Vera de Erques. Here, at almost 750 m above sea level, there are great views of Montaña Tejina, with its little eye-catching white chapel on the summit, and over the northern section of the west coast to the Teno mountains. During the subsequent gentle descent by a different route there are good views along the southern west coast, from the distinctive Marazul apartment complex, with the twin towers of the Hard Rock Hotel particularly catching the eye.
