The coach ride from the capital was on small roads and very, very windy, as we hugged the coast. But when we turned off onto tiny single carriageway roads that I wouldn’t take a car down, my admiration for our coach driver increased 50 fold! Once the bus parked (I use that term loosely) we tracked along a narrow, wet water channel, up the gorge to the waterfall. The local micro climate was definitely tropical, as evidenced by the lush vegetation. Lots of hikers trek to this spot, I can see why. Worth a visit, if you’re in the area.

We have done the 1.5 km- hike known as the Espigón Atravesado viewpoint ( via the PR LP 6). Its not too difficult to do, and I suffer from chronic back pains, etc. (keep in mind that some parts of it include going uphill...) You will see the lovely flora on the way like the omnipresent laureles, tiles,ferns, etc The visitor's Centre is worth checking out too-great photos with some information/description provided( plus a film to be watched on the spot as well). The guy who works there is very kind and helpful. BTW, ....during my 2 visits to Los Tilos the popular waterfall route was closed on both occasions;) , 1st time because of the broken tree, there were really oppressive hot winds from Sahara that come with the infamous '''calima'' that day ... the 2d time around the route was closed because George Clooney's film crew chose some parts of the route as a setting for his new Netflix movie.... just my luck... Fun Fact no 3, I left the island on Saturday at 17:15 local time , Georgie landed at the La Palma airport 24 hours later...

We did three walks in this park. The first was the Mirador de las Barandas, just behind the visitor's centre. It's listed as 1.3km, but is a very challenging walk - 95% uphill on the way up, and also difficult on the way down (no railing and loose leaves on the ground). We're in our early 30s and pretty fit, but needed to have a couple of rest pauses on the way up The view from the top is beautiful. The second walk was to the waterfall. Strangely (given it's the easiest and most accessible walk available) this walk isn't signposted, but if you walk down from the visitor's centre, on your right hand side as you turn the bend just near the restaurant, you'll pass some steps up. You can climb up these steps and find your way onto the path (as we did), but the easier way is to walk another 10-20 metres past the steps and on your right will be a path. You'll be able to hear the running water. It's a flat walk of about 5 mins, including part through a tunnel, to the waterfall. You can actually walk through the waterfall and keep walking for another 10-15 minutes and you'll go through some beautiful sections of the forest before ending up at a cliff with a small tunnel. We couldn't find a way to safely get up to the tunnel, but this extra walk was still worth doing and getting a bit wet passing through the waterfall for. This section is more challenging than the walk to the waterfall - you need to climb over a few rocks etc. The third walk we did was again away from the visitor's centre, probably about 500m down the road you come in on where there's a lot of cars parked and a big sign with walking routes. The actual walk isn't one of the routes on this sign, but is to the left up a large path wide enough for a car to drive along. To the left of the path is a smaller sign about this particular walk. It's numbered from 1 to 10 (although the numbering isn't evenly spaced and not sure what it represents) and is 2km to reach the lookout. Once you get up and through the tunnel, the first 3/4 of the walk is quite a moderate incline, going through some lovely scenery. It then becomes a bit steeper as you approach the lookout. When you see the number 10, you've not yet reached the lookout - turn left and go up some steps for another minute or two to get to the actual lookout. It took us about 35 minutes to get to the top, and the way down is obviously quicker!

A beautifully relaxing walk, incredibly refreshing. Plenty of birds, mice & lizards to see along the routes. A great walk.
