Route to follow in El Barranco del Infierno and what to expect
The route once you are at El Barranco is pretty straight-forward. You will find on your way smaller paths to your left and right. Simply ignore them and continue all the way on the main path.
One of our favorite things in El Barranco del Infierno is vegetation and it changes through the trek. As you get closer inside the ravine the landscape gets drier. Water from this area is used for irrigation further south. The first interesting viewpoint is Acequia Larga. You will arrive after 30 minutes of walking. You will enjoy fantastic views of the southern coast and the Adeje area. The last area where you will be able to stop is called La Cojedera, a good place to enjoy a break. From this area owwards you cannot stop. The path becomes greener and narrower.
Continue for 30 more minutes on the same path and you will arrive to a stream. You will encounter much more vegetation in this area of the ravine. You will find some pools along the stream and after a short more difficult walk of fewer than ten minutes, you will encounter a beautiful 200-meter waterfall! The waterfall is well-protected by the steep ravine walls. Depending on the time of the year the waterfall brings more or less water.
The waterfall is your prize at the end of this trek and we are sure you will be able to take excellent pictures here. You will need to return using the same path from where you arrived.
