Enjoy all parts of Granadilla de Abona with new trail guide 

Granadilla de Abona has published a new guide of trails in three languages for 13 routes along the coast, the mediums and the summit of the municipality.

The Mayor, José Domingo Regalado and councillor for historical heritage, Fredi Oramas, presented in the Ethnographic Museum this publication that spotlights on a network of routes with essential data. They can also be downloaded free.

José Domingo Regalado stressed that Granadilla de Abona, the third largest municipality in Tenerife, has an outstanding network of trails from the summit to the sea that should be known as a valuable resource for promoting and betting on nature tourism.

Fredi Oramas said it was a challenge to collect and reflect these roads in a modern guide adapted to the new times, as a way not only of promotion but also to guarantee their knowledge and respect for our environment. He added that, in addition to those on the coast, in the mediums there are circular paths that are unique on the island that are visited by many walkers every day and on weekends.

Granadilla de Abona extends from the summit to the sea by slopes, ravines and volcanic cones; from the 2,718 metres of altitude of the steep slopes that flank Mountain Guajara to the imposing Red Mountain that cuts the sea and the coast in a magical silhouette. Coast, midlands and summits, all in one: seven diverse protected natural areas, legendary population centres full of dynamism, an extensive gastronomic and hotel offer and attractive landscapes full of heritage and natural essence.

Regarding the network of trails, there are three on the coast: El Médano-Montaña Pelada, El Médano-Montaña Roja and the climb to Montaña Roja. These roads are signposted through information panels and directional posts when they pass through protected natural spaces. As for the Camino Real del Sur that connects Granadilla with San Miguel, it also has its own signage through panels.

Then there are the eight trails that are part of the ERA (European Ramblers Association) and are classified as small or large, and are: Granadilla-Los Escurriales, Las Vegas-Los Escurriales, Camino de La Corredera, Las Vegas-Pine Guirre-Risco del Muerto, Camino del Molino, Las Vegas-Los Hibrones-La Abejera, Vilaflor-Paisaje Lunar-Vilaflor, and Anaga-Chasna (natural path). Finally, the itinerary of climb to Guajara is part of the network of trails of the Teide National Park, counting this with signs such as panels and direction indicators.
