Spain's highest peak!
by Booneman

This is without question the most used and the most impressive trail in the national park. It starts out along Montaña Blanca path through pumice stone terrain for the first 3 miles. Once at the base of Mt Teide, it gives way to the old summit route that ascends Lomo Tieso over a steep gradient (about 1,000ft of gain per mile) to Refugio de Altavista or mountain hut. The path continues upwards less steeply through young black lava flows devoid of vegetation. The trail ends at La Rambleta, alongside the vantage point, Mirador de La Fortaleza.To ensure visitor safety and the preservation of the area, restrictive measures have been established, forbidding access from La Rambleta (11,656ft) to the summit (12,198ft) unless in possession of a special permit from the Teide National Park.


This trail is quite challenging, gaining 4,500 feet of elevation in 6.5 miles from the trailhead to the summit, with most of that coming in the last 3 miles. The terrain is rough in those final 3 miles as you cross steep lava fields in route to the peak
