Montañeta-La Pajarera Circular (download GPX file)
An enjoyable walk that starts and finishes in the pretty village of Montañeta, high above Garachico. In Spring the little settlement is almost overgrown with wild flowers! Most of the walk is in mature pine forest, with some very large pine trees, although a number of clearings are passed through along the way, where the old lava, and the vegetation that grows on it, predominates. The focal point of the walk is a viewpoint that gives (we think, as it was in cloud the day we walked) marvellous views across the sea to the island of La Palma. The “Parajero” (aviary/birdcage) of the walk title is a small stone forest building close to the viewpoint.

Difficulty: Medium
Total Ascent: 247 meter
Total Descent: 246 meter
Max Elevation: 1120 meter
Min Elevation: 921 meter
Tierra del Trigo-Cascada Lomo Morin Return (download GPX file)
Outside of water parks there are few waterfalls in Tenerife. The wondrous “Cascada Lomo Morín” at Tierra del Trigo is part of a man-made irrigation system, but is in a stunning natural setting. The first section of this short “there and back” walk in a hugely verdant setting is full of rural charm and interest. The waterfall itself is a splendid sight, and overlooks Los Silos and the North coast from a lofty position.
Length: 2.37 km

Total Ascent: 150 meter
Total Descent: 148 meter
