A doubletrack on the north side of el Teide offering the chance for some solitude.

Overview

Description

This doubletrack connects the el Lagar recreation area with the trailhead for the Arenas Negras trails off of TF-373.

Starting from the el Lagar recreation area, where there are services including probably water, you'll climb 200 m (650 ft). Once you finish the climb, you'll enjoy six miles of descent back to the trailhead on TF-373. This trail makes part of the Arenas Negras (Black Sands) loop.

The trail goes through a thick forest of pines. The north side of the island is much wetter than the south side and commonly shrouded in clouds, so you may find yourself riding through a dense fog on this trail as I did when I rode it.

Despite the trail name, I could find no sign of the springs or flowing water. Water is scarce on the island though, so presumably there is a spring nearby that early residents were very happy to see.
