We did this one from San Bartolomé as we didn't want a big climb at the end. 2/3 of the trail is on unmade road which is dusty and throws up a lot of glare. There is very little shade. Whilst you cover the miles quickly, the road is tedious and seems to go on for ever. In its favour, the navigation is easy and I can imagine it suiting a group of friends who want a longish hike whilst chatting and not having to pay attention to route finding. This route is rated as a top trail in more than one publication, but whilst we enjoyed our day out there are more scenic trails from Tejeda.

Beautiful trail. Shaded so refreshingly cool. Take a jacket. Thoroughly enjoyed this short walk. Look for the chinyero road signs. you can park on side of road and walk 600m or if you carry on around the bend there is a dirt track down the hill with plenty of parking for camper vans.

Great walk up to the rock. Bit steep n places but worth it

Great hike, only complaint is that the wind does get a bit much after a while

Very nice track

Great views from the north stretch of the trail!

we went up the south side. very steep and was slippy in parts after heavy rain. didn't make it all the way to the top and coming down was slow and steady. looking at others going up the east side seemed to look easier. not signposted . definitely wear good grip boots, bring hiking sticks if you have them..a jacket for the change in temp...and a phone just in case....

A pleasant walk with great views over Lanzarote and across to Fuerteventura. Can be windy and chilly on top regardless of weather at sea level.

difficult parking on the main road. the loop can be added to by walking towards Santiago del teide and La Mancha on well signposted trail.

A great walk. Very rough ground so need a good pair of stout shoes. i only walked 3 miles and back but was able to do the walk naked

Nice place for a trail run! Parking place is about 200/300 meters from the entrance of the path, so you need to walk a bit further up the road to get there...
Interesting and spooky place when it’s cloudy, but really nice views!

There are several starting points in the neighborhood to the east of the volcano, all leading up the hill. One can walk around the caldera. The panoramic view on top is excellent, covering the western portion of Lanzarote. The trail is relatively easy, though it was quite windy on top.

Great trail through lava field by the ocean. Part of it is in the Timanfaya national park. The trail is mostly flat but full of sharp lava rocks. Nice views of volcanos.

Excellent hike. Initial portion through fresh timanfaya lava flow. Gravel trail with occasional sharp a-a lava sherds, wear hiking boots. The climb is steady and not overwhelming. Extremely windy on top today. Gorgeous view near and far. Watch for goats.

It was a lovely unexpected walk we did with our 14 month old daughter in a baby rucksack. Took us 2.5hrs with a stop for a picnic half way. It’s a good family trail.

Easy walking for couple of 55+. Park about 1km south. Track well marked, good underfoot. Remember it's cooler than on the coast. Nice scenery!

Great hike through lava rock and up the side of the crater, with the option to walk around the rim. Very windy up along the rim!! Beautiful views at top. Best hike on Lanzarote.

Easy walking for couple of 70+. Need to park about 1km south. Track well marked + good underfoot. Remember it's cooler than on the coast + altitude higher than anywhere in UK.

Ruta conocida como "El Bastón", es la parte palmera del GR131, que discurre por tramos en todas las islas. Normalmente se hace en 4 jornadas por evitar cargar con gran cantidad de agua que es escasa en las zonas de cumbre por las que discurre la ruta. En esta ocasión se hizo en dos días y unas horas, como consecuencia de unir jornadas y llevar toda el agua necesaria para ser independiente de los puntos de abastecimiento, en parte por ahorrar tiempo, en parte por si no había agua en los lugares posibles.
Es una ruta espectacular en todo: diferentes paisajes, sustratos, altura, vegetación. Con dureza asequible a todos (dependiendo de cómo la hagas) y que recomiendo a todos los que disfruten con los grandes senderos. La Palma es un lugar privilegiado y los palmeros han sabido cuidar su patrimonio natural como para disfrutar en toda la isla.

Route known as "The Cane", is the part of the GR131of La Palma, which runs by sections in all the islands. Normally it is done in 4 days to avoid carrying a large amount of water that is scarce in the summit areas through which the route runs. This time it was done in two days and a few hours, as a result of joining days and bring all the water necessary to be independent of the supply points, in part to save time, partly in case there was no water in the possible places.
It is a spectacular route in everything: different landscapes, substrata, height, vegetation. With hardness accessible to all (depending on how you do it) and that I recommend to all who enjoy the great trails. La Palma is a privileged place and the La Palma inhabitans have been able to take care of their natural heritage as to enjoy the whole island.
