March 2, 2020
The Teno Rural Park Tour is a varied hike through an area characterized by traditional hamlets such as El Palmar, Masca or Erjos. Along the way you will come across old bread and brick ovens, some of them are still in use. Typical customs and traditions have survived to this day in this remote region. You start in the village of Erjos and walk south to the Charcas de Erjos. These pools are considered one of the most important wetlands in Tenerife and were created when fertile soil was extracted for the coasts. Countless rare plants line the bank and the path. The path leads upwards from the charcas and the higher you climb, the thicker the vegetation. You enter a light pine forest that welcomes you with its typical spicy fragrance. At the highest point of the hike near the Cruz del Gala summit, you have a wonderful view that extends to the village of Masca and Teide. The slopes of the striking mountains are covered with a carpet of plants that glow in countless shades of green. It goes along the edge of the forest through the impressive landscape. After almost ten kilometers you will reach the destination of this tour at the Mirador La Cruz de Hilda. There is a modern café with a wonderful panoramic terrace, where you can finally stop off.Bus lines 325, 392 and 460 take you to Erjos, the starting point of this hike. The Mirador La Cruz de Hilda is served by lines 355 and 365.
