This route offers a varied mix of botanical and cultural elements from the island of Tenerife. You start at the church in Las Mercedes and initially follow the path along the street. Passing traditional houses and terraced fields, you will soon turn into the forest. In the Anaga Mountains, the mountain slopes are covered with primeval cloud forest: gnarled, lichen-covered laurel trees line the path and give nature a mystical character. You hike up to Cruz del Carmen, a wonderful viewpoint. There is also a small church, a visitor center and a restaurant. After a short break, continue on the natural path that shows you the scenic beauty of Tenerife. After you have crossed the Barranco de la Goleta, the rows of trees clear up. You step out onto a plain covered with flowering shrubs and bushes and after a good eleven kilometers you reach the mountain village of Tegueste with its distinctive church.You can reach Las Mercedes from San Cristóbal de La Laguna with the bus lines 270, 271, 273 and 274. Back from Tegueste take line 52.
