Country hamlets in the northwest of Tenerife
Located between the municipalities of El Tanque, Los Silos and Buenavista del Norte, in the north of Tenerife, this easy walk is nearly all on forest tracks and joins the rural areas of Erjos and Las Portelas. The path crosses Monte del Agua and Pasos, a big wood of verdant plants with laurel forest and Myrica faya. On the way trekkers will see two species of native Canarian pigeons, laurel pigeon and collared dove. Also of note are interesting examples of traditional architecture with tiled roofs and stone walls.
Remains of the first cereal growing
The Monte del Agua trek is an eleven kilometre route with an incline of 343 metres, and starts in the town of Erjos, a place of historical importance in the Canaries as it was the connection point for the northern and southern regions of Tenerife. A cereal growing and farming area, the walk goes through laurel forest and pines, pools of water and orchards in the area of El Palmar, in Teno Rural park. Of average difficulty, wear suitable clothing and footwear and take food and liquids.
