Route Pico de las Nieves to Cañadón del Jierro – Hiking Gran Canaria

It is a route that starts from the Pico de las Nieves (1,951 meters) and goes towards the Cañadón del Jierro at almost a drop of 820M. It is fairly easy to follow, which is made difficult by its constant downhill and loose terrain. It can get tiresome in the sun.

Starting from Pico de Las Nieves

In the middle of the section where the difficulty increases, it is necessary to try to make the route on a day without rain or that has not rained recently since being a steep descent there may be slips.

We will descend the Tirajana cliffs through the Sombrío and Jierro canyons along paths, sometimes diffuse or exposed in some short and easy descents.

From there it is time to go down until after a while of traveling we reach a curious wooden bridge known as “La Tabla” where it avoids you falling off a cliff that despite not being very high, it does a lot of damage. From there we enter directly into the Cañadón el Jierro basin until we reach a viewpoint where we can see the Campanario cliff. We are in the upper section of the Canyon.

The cliffs are abandoned to follow the narrow but evident path that descends along the north slope of Mount Fama over the Culata ravine until it reaches La Degollada, where the Lomo de Vera begins. To finish, we continue down the path that ascends to the top of the ridge and then descends until we finally reach the road.
