During a boat trip I gazed across the bay and thought I must get to the top and so we did.
From our hotel ( the Arona Gran ) it took us 1hr 45 minutes up what at times is no more than a goat track. So yes it is a challenging walk and pretty steep at times but with a bit of perseverance it's possibl . The views from the top are stunning. appropriate footwear is recommended as is a bottle of wate .
No hesitation in recommending

Great climb, I unfortunately had an issue trying to find the path on where to start and done a bit of rock climbing (by accident) before I finally found the actual path. I could see the path half way up but it’s a bit unclear. I followed a group of walkers in the end but when I first started out no one was around. The path is right in the middle so don’t follow the path down to the water go in the opposite direction. Good views but can be rocky on your feet esp coming down so make sure you have trainers/walking boots and water. I would recommend a buddie to walk with just incase you get lost.

I entered the mountain from the village of Palm Mar, the opposite side of Los Crisantos. The hike up the mountain side took only 20 minutes to reach the first elevated plateau. The trails from this vantage point will take you to the tip of mountain overlooking the ocean, Palm Mar and Los Crisantos. A trek of another 20 minutes will take you it's highest point or you can venture north and head towards Guaza/TF-1 for views of El Teide the city of Guaza. Trails on the Guaza/Palm Mar side are easily identified and even in the few places where it may not be easy to see the trail, yellow painted rocks will help guide your way.

Thie hike isn't too difficult but certainly not meant for those with walking issues. If you don't want to do the Masca Valley walk or are simply looking for a new vantage point of the isle, this journey just may be for you. I stayed in Palm Mar and did the journey up the mountain almost each morning, the views were great and it's a piece of the island that will leave you feeling as if it's all your own. If you like a little adventure and something different then bars and beaches, then this is for you, I highly suggest this hike.

You can walk over the lower section to Palm Mar and get a bus back,check the bus times first ,they don't run at the weekends.If you walk to the peaks where the radio masts are a map is advisable.There a few places where you could go wrong ,giving a longer walk.I tried this walk 2 years ago but gave up half way up ,as it was a hot sunny day and I was exhausted.This time I tried it on a cloudy day ,I found it much easier.I returned by the shorter route which starts near the second set of radio masts and terminates on the TF-655 road then walk to the nearest bus stop on Ave. San Francisco.This route is much shorter than the more popular route.It is also much steeper ,it zig zags down the steep hillside.If you try this route you need some good walking shoes ,definitally not flip-flips.This route can be treacherous if you are not careful ,try the first few yards ,if you don't feel confident on this path at the start ,turn back and try an easier route.

It’s even better than Barranco del Inferno! That stony path is more colorful, more adventurous, having many branches, so that it is up to you which way to take! The view is astonishing during whole the way up and down, not just from the top. While hiking, besides young people, I saw there an old age persons, and sportsmen, and kids, etc. So despite its difficulty, this trail is suitable for all age and fitness level persons. Of course, you’ll need to wear proper shoes, have some water and patience. Also you better watch the time: it’s better to be back before sunset. Enjoy!

We previously completed this climb in April 2018 but wanted to repeat the experience this year. Starting in Calle La Marea (Cristianos) at 09:30 it took 90 minutes to reach the top. The first half hour is on loose rocks and strong, supportive footwear is essential. It is fairly easy to find the route as it is either marked with pink arrows or yellow spots painted on the rocks. September is definitely hotter than April to undertake this climb and at times it felt like we were in a furnace but then a cooling breeze would come off the sea and make things easier. As always the views were amazing and you can hear the animals from the distant Monkey Park. It took 70 minutes to descend to our starting point. Take plenty of water!

3rd time up the mountain, this time walked across to Guaza from Los Cristianos. Previously had walked across to Palm Mar. Both nice walks, though tiring. But its the views of Los Cristianos that make these mountains special.
Well worth doing but make sure you have adequate footwear & are fit enough.

BUT BEWARE a rescue helicopter is expensive & not covered on you holiday insurance.

Worth it though 🙂

We explored this plateau, between Los Christianos and Palm Mar, starting behind the entrance of the Palm Mar resort: Las Olas. In the beginning, the path is very narrow and style, after 20 min, you reached the first plateau. You can cross this toward Los Christianos,but be careful: you're walking here on a mixed volcanic/seebottem: sometimes sharp and it can be painful (also the big cacti)! Once on the plateau, you can continue towards the antennes on the top. Have some water and wear good shoes!! The views above are splendid!

If you like a walk off the beaten track and want to get away from the hotels, bars, awful karaoke, shops, traffic, people etc.. Then I highly recommend this walk to the top.
The walk starts from the edge of Los Cristianos up a zig zag path to the bluffs, and from there you can continue your walk up a series of trails and a road (used by maintenance vehicles) to reach the top.
The views of Los Cristianos are amazing and well worth the effort.

You do need to be physically fit in order to attempt it and please remember to take lots of water as with the sun on you all the time (and steep uphill sections) you risk becoming dehydrated very quickly.
