It’s a picturesque but tiring ascending. Visitors have to be properly dressed. Avoid descending, there is a local road to return into Portariá.

A little boring, monotonous trail. Not very interesting for teens, and also for younger kids. The advantages are lots of shade and cold streams. Very nice for a hot day
