Getting There

El Barranco del Infierno, llamado así por su terreno salvaje y con bastante pendiente, es considerado un Espacio Natural Protegido y forma parte de la Reserva Natural Especial del Barranco del Infierno, es por eso que su capacidad máxima al día es de 300 visitantes. Este barranco fue el hogar de los guanches, aborígenes que vivían en las cuevas de la garganta y siguiendo su cauce llegarás a la cascada más alta de la isla de Tenerife. El Barranco del Infierno se encuentra a 1300 metros de altitud y el sendero dura unas 3 horas y media aproximadamente entre ida y vuelta (6500 metros de longitud). Aunque no es un sendero muy complicado, es necesario llevar buen calzado de montaña para no resbalarse ni tropezarse con las piedras. El recorrido de este sendero empieza a 350 m sobre el nivel del mar, en el municipio de Adeje, en un lugar que constituye un balcón natural con magníficas vistas del paisaje sur de la Isla.

I enjoyed this trail. You went up and down hill and into the valley. It was pretty calm and lots of lizards, birds and frogs about.

Stunning scenary. Easy hike. Waterfall was just a trickle but I suspect it is flowing well during rainy season. Recommend ascending during early morning to avoid direct sun.

Easy walk - no idea why this is rated as “hard”. 8,50€ entry fee, and still very crowded. Recommended to make a reservation to avoid wait

Easy trail. Since trail is not free (~8 eur), they provide helmets (for falling rocks, didn't happend during my trip). you can rent hiking boots and sticks. I saw children and old people in the trail. I recommend it for people not used to hiking.

First to Review

A fun half-day hike, but I was close to giving this a three star rating. If you are an avid hiker, there are better trails on this great island. it is not a challenge and it is crowded for a limited waterfall. But it is pretty on a sunny day, and a nice warm-up after a long plane ride. Wear sunscreen, there is not a lot of cover.
