Absolutely breathtaking paths. We got there in rain, mist, strong wind and extreme cold in late January. It was still an amazing path to walk on. Lichens, epiphytons, ferns and loads of endemic plant and bird species. I highly recommend this place.

Second visit with family and friends. Love the place, silence, greenery, fresh air. The view is just amazing from top. Need permission to visit the place and it can be booked online.

If you like hiking or enjoy the woods you should go. Unique wood with Laurisilva and very valued by people from Tenerife. You can go to some of the best beaches in Tenerife

It is enchanting space to enable close commune with nature. It is not to rush simply to stay among the trees , listen to the sound of the wind among the branches , feel the air on your face moisture . Lovely place!

Wild and nice forest. Nice tracks that are slippery when it's wet, so walking sticks and good walking shoes are mandatory for walks under/after rain.
