When the people of El Pinar moved to El Valle de El Golfo to perform farm work they used this trail which fell into disuse as the move itself.
The trail has two sectors relative to its degree of difficulty:
First, a continuous climb toward the summit through crop fields in the upper area of El Pinar, entering the Canary pine forest evolving into heathland as we ascend.
Secondly: descent into the lower area of the Valley of El Golfo, where we gradually abandon the dense bush to meet with a landscape dominated by agricultural land, mainly vine.
This path allows us to contemplate on our way the different aspects of the El Hierro hillsides while reaching the highest point of the island.
