We took a cab up to Los Brecitos and hiked down to the Parking lot. We took a detour to see the Cascada de Los Colores. It is a wonderful hike with a great variety of views. The first half to the Zona de Acampada is a lovely, easy hike. From there to Roque Idafe is quite steep here and there and it's sometimes hard descending. You have to be careful on the stones. We took a detour to the Cascada de Los Colores and that will take you right through the riverbed. You have to cross the water every time. Sometimes it's quite slippery on the rocks. This isn't an easy part of the hike. You have to wear hiking shoes. From the Cascada down to the Parking lot took us about two hours. The whole hike took us five and a half hours. It is a great hike!

This was actually near the end of a 6 hour hike and a lot of people seemed to miss that the coloured fall was to the left of the river facing upstream and stayed by the bigger fall to the right...The water was not running fast but the colours were still fascinating!

My favourite walk on La Palma during a 7 day holiday. Great views as you walk along the barranco. You will see the stream contained within gradually turn from yellow to orange . As there can be a bit of stepping in and out of the stream to make progress, I found it easier to wear an old pair of white plimsolls ( canvas sneakers ) that I didn't mind going orange . They washed fine anyway.

It was rather difficult to find the trail description in the internet so the best way is to go to a visitor's center. The trail takes 2,5 hours one way, but is much faster and more pleasant if you don't follow the marks but go on the river bed (during the dry season). The last 500 meters are magic, although less colorful than the brochures tell you (but again, that was during the dry season)

This is a lovely but difficult walk through the streams, with lots of clambering over rocks, but again well worth the effort, but you do need to be fairly fit & well equipped, some precipitous views, not for the faint hearted.
