If there is one trek we can recommend in Anaga it is this one (it is simple enough to be enjoyed by everybody) since it will bring you to the best example of laurel forest in Tenerife. Besides, you will also enjoy splendid views of the coast. It is a circular trail which simplifies logistics.
The hike starts in the old recreation area of La Ensillada (Mk 4,9 TF 123) You will be able to park here. A wide path will take you straight into the forest The path is easy to follow and after a little walk you will be able to enjoy Roque Chinobre. Once you enjoy this and return to the path you will head to Roque Anambro which offers the remains of a volcanic chimney that exploded millions of years ago.
