MTB Route in El Hierro

A circular route starting at Valverde
The stretches of road and track alternate on this circular route which starts at Valverde, the capital of El Hierro, located in the northeast of the island. It goes through the central part to the extreme west, a route which is taken every four years to celebrate the descent of the Blessed Mother of King of Kings, the best known feast day. The route goes along the beautiful steep slopes of el Julan valley, with its ravines, a landscape which descends from the Golfo valley to the sea.
Cycle for kilometres in La Dehesa
The route continues to La Dehesa de Sabinosa, a unique spot with a difficult loop which allows the cyclist to contemplate the Frontera valley from Mirador de Bascos. Here the star is the juniper, that twisted tree, deformed by the wind which has become a real symbol of the island. On the way back to Valverde, La Orchilla (El Pinar) lighthouse which in its day marked zero meridian can be spotted in the distance and is the highlight of this 78 kilometre route.
