We will now tell you about the 3 best routes in the South of Tenerife, specifically in Guía de Isora, and what makes them so special.
Trail Chío – Vera de Erques PR-TF 69
This 14.6 km trail starts in the village of Chío, specifically on El Roquillo street. It begins from the cemetery and connects to the access to Chiguergue. The path continues and leads us to the rural nucleus of Chirche, declared a Cultural Heritage, and a Historic Ensemble by the Government of the Canary Islands in 2008. The trail continues ascending along the old Tágara path until reaching the “bailadero” area, where we will veer right onto the path that leads to the Rural Hamlet of El Jaral. From there, we descend through the path that crosses the ravine and connects with the uninhabited hamlet of Las Fuentes, known for its rich heritage and ethnographic value. The trail then descends further along the Montiel Path until reaching the village square of Vera de Erques, where it concludes.
Trail Chío to Arguayo SL-TF 201
The trail is located in Chío and covers a distance of 3.88 km. We will pass through a malpaís area, where the path alternates with narrow trails and the vegetation is limited to bejeques and isolated pine trees until we reach the square of the Arguayo Pottery Center. For the more adventurous, the trail can continue from Arguayo to Santiago del Teide, passing through the Chinyero Natural Reserve, making the route longer. This trail is ideal for the early months of the year when the predominant almond trees are in bloom in this area.
Trail Guía de Isora a Boca Tauce PR-TF 70
With a distance of approximately 17.5 km and high difficulty, we find ourselves on the approved trail PR-TF 70 Guía de Isora – Tágara – Boca Tauce.
