RÉSERVES NATURELLES DANS LE RANDONNÉE: Paisaje Protegido de Tamanca. Parque Natural de Cumbre Vieja.
PÉRIODE RECOMMANDÉE: All year round.
COMMENT ARRIVER AU DÉPART?: There is a bus service in both directions.
RECOMMANDATIONS: Habitual precautions common to hiking in general are listed below. At the risk of sounding obvious, here are some of the most important:
Check weather forecasts before setting off to hike.
Don´t go alone
Tell someone your intended destination and expected time of arrival
Carry a small rucksack with warm clothing, waterproofs, food and plenty of water.
Don´t forget such simple items as: sun hat, protective cream and sun glasses.
Carry a mobile phone with fully-charged battery, a map and, if possible, a compass. They will probably never be used but, when required, are of vital importance.
Wear suitable gear, especially footwear: trekking boots or similar are essential, trainers or pumps are to be avoided.
AUTRES REMARQUES: Although the first part of the route goes through inhabited areas with all kinds of facilities, from Jedey onwards the path enters much more solitary surroundings where the necessary precautions regarding food and water must be taken. It must also be borne in mind that the path´s overall trend is uphill.
