Chinyero Circular se encuentra cerca de Santiago del Teide, España. El sendero es ideal para caminar y normalmente demora de 1 a 3 horas. Chinyero es el volcán más joven de Tenerife. Entró en erupción en 1909 y el camino lo acercará a esa explosión centenaria. Verá bosques de pinos y los flujos de ceniza negra y lava de la erupción. El paisaje cambia constantemente mientras recorres el volcán. Está bien señalizado todo el camino, aunque es una ruta circular, los letreros nunca te dicen qué tan lejos estás de tu propio punto de partida. El sendero está en el Parque Nacional del Teide. Hay muchos senderos en el parque y hacen un viaje increíble a través de las islas.Show more

Length: 5.8 mi • Est. 3 h 40 m
This trail begins near the Montserrat Monastery. The path takes you through forest, which eventually becomes stone peaks. The Sant Jeroni is the highest point in the Montserrat massif. The top of Sant Jeroni offers great views of villages and a steep drop down. The path is well marked, but could still warrant a set of hiking poles. The trail is concrete and well packed dirt, many switchbacks so moderate climbing required and the terrain is pretty rough in patches, so advisable to wear comfort and appropriate footwear, and also warm clothing as it get cold the higher you go. Bring water and enjoy the breathtaking views! If you’d prefer to shorten this trail you can look into taking the Sant Joan Funicular.Show more
