Revisiting the circular walk from Las Vegas (Walk 22 in the book)
I recently heard that some of the signage on this walk, (no 22 in the book ‘Tenerife Nature Walks’) has recently been changed. Whereas before this circular walk was signed with green and white signposts and paint marks, it is now largely yellow and white. This is because the authorities are signing and improving another, longer circle, which goes higher up. It is another walk I know and love, going up through the barranco past the impressive rock-climbing cliff called “Risco de Muerto” and then to the east to come down past Montaña Tames (an excellent lunch spot), and down to join walk 22 on its return to Las Vegas. There has also been a lot of work done repairing and widening parts of the very popular circle described in walk 22.
To avoid confusion, if you are doing walk 22, follow the signs which say ‘El Molino’ (the mill ) until you get to the mill, which is a stone tower below a round reservoir (point 6 in the book). There is a renewed signboard explaining how the mill used to work, as there is now no water channel to the top of it to make it more obvious. From this point on, follow the signs back to Las Vegas.
