Barranco de Mascuervo

Barranco de Mascuervo has a flat tree lined riverbed with long climbing hills on both sides. We chose a looping trail that climbed up the side of the canyon to get big views, and then came back down to a steep trail to play in the shade of the canyon.

The Cross of Teror

In the hills above the town of Teror are all kinds of ecosystems. Fern forests. Cactus and succulent fields. Eucalyptus groves. We hiked up to the electric christian cross overlooking the town. It wasn’t all that long but it went up and up and up. We climbed 420 metres!!! Crazy right. It looked over the entire village of Teror, the views were amazing. The trail is a loop, which I like better.

Afterwards we took a bus back up to where we parked our car. It is a great place for everyone to explore.

This is the perfect kid hike if you are on the south of Gran Canaria and have half a day. Someone made a scavenger hunt for kids that included painted rocks. The canyon and hike area are really pretty and the total distance is just under 5km.
