Description

This trail branches off of the Pista Barranco de la Arena (Sand Ravine Trail) and ends at the Arenas Negras recreational area. There may be water at the Arenas Negras recreation area, but don't count on it. It follows a portion of the Canal de Vergara aqueduct, so it offers a long, slow descent (from east to west). Water is in short supply on the island so there are a network of storage reservoirs and aqueducts that crisscross the island. The surface is mostly crushed lava rock.

Because you are high above the Atlantic Ocean, it offers sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, including occasional views of the neighboring la Palma island. You may even catch an occasional glimpse of the el Teide summit.

Towards the end when you leave the Pista Canal de Vergara which parallels the canal, you'll enjoy a steep but short downhill into the Arenas Negras recreational area. Of course, keep this in mind if you are planning to climb back up to the BC-1 Ruta Forestal del Norte route!

El Teide volcano is literally the reason you are here. Without it, there would be no Tenerife!

The clouds have erased the Atlantic Ocean a mile below, but you can still see the island of la Palma off in the distance.

This is the view from the intersection of the Pista Arenas Negras and the Pista Canal de Vergara.  The island of la Palma lies in the distance with the Atlantic Ocean shrouded in clouds.
