This route is situated on the northwest coast of El Hierro. It starts at La Ermita de la Virgen de los Reyes. A long, not so steep ascent takes you on trails that run through open spaces on one side and green Mencafete on the other side.
Through the green laurel and juniper forest you arrive at Malpaso del Pico at 1500m above sea level and also the highest viewpoint of El Hierro. The trail ends with a steep descent through green forest arriving in Frontera.
This route is the second part of the El Meridiano Marathon in El Hierro.
